Poem – The final journey of a lost & weary traveller

I came up with this piece for a short story I am currently writing, and while a little dark I quite enjoyed the structure.

Sand and sea, night without day
Traveller beyond world’s light
Each path an echo, each sound a dream

Long my foot stood upon the path
Mind and soul, the man I have lost
Hand, eye and mark, I journey on

To the End I search
Reason without rule
Purpose without neglect

To die a release, to live a burden
One to walk unremembered and alone
A question to answer, a reply to weep

To the reach I march
Wonder, horror, pain and despair
Soon an end, unknown, dark and final

One thought on “Poem – The final journey of a lost & weary traveller

  1. I’m not much of a poet so I’m not going to comment on structure or anything like that. I will say that I love the subject of the poem. It’s dark but not overwhelming. The poem is very realistic and I’m certain that many readers will be able to relate to the narrator.
