English: Rail Trail Board walk over a boggy area on the Rail Trail. At the top of the steps the path turns to the left and continues northward on the eastern bank of the Murk Esk. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

A gate.

Imprisoned
for tens of toxic years

in mind,
family,

country, spirit …
I walk through
and out.
Freed

and redeemed
I walk clear up the hill
reach the top with paces to spare.
The road levels off
turns widely right.

Paused,
I breathe sharply
struck with blue sky
overhead, billowing trees
below, a benign wind
at my ears.
The road loops and turns
running now downhill.


I am home free
