Rest

Trees along the river

Trees along the river in South Sudan

On a long journey away from home,
horrors left behind,
more dangers yet to come.

Your strength and health all you possess
worth less every day
until they’re gone as well

No one there to care for you,
family and friends missing
if still existing at all

A bit of comfort found along the road.
some water, a bit of shade
a place to lay down your head
