The Thorn

Before, always thinking
how can this work?
All roads lead to the same
desolate location
no matter the direction.

I fight for my future,
wrestle with it daily
heavily on my mind.
No matter how I
twist and turn it
the result endurs.

Then suddenly, an understanding
an awakening.
The Thorn is there.
Remove it and life renews.
Dreams return.
A smile upon my face.
