[ SK ] Of Walking Dudes And Men

 
Everyone    
has their personal Lincoln Tunnel  
     
---dark place afraid to hazard---   
     
its tail lamp blinking    
inking a scape from New York    
straight from apocalyptic nightmares      
   
where corpses nap in stalled cars    
hordes numbering hundreds;    
their undeadly reanimation      
occurring at any given moment    
should back be turned    
     
but just as you have to    
make your own bed      
lie down in it  
     
one has to rise up    
take a stand    
walk through circumstance    
acknowledge pain, emotion    
fear    
       
It has to begin somewhere;    
alone if necessary    
     
Here    
is as good a place as any to    
start    
     
What doesn't kill you    
makes you stronger
     
     
Right?    
     
We'll see ...    
     
you    
     
     
on    
     
     
     
the    
     
     
     
     
other    
     
     
     
     
     
side
