The Road Beckons

The road beckons
as it frightens,
its straights and swerves
opportunities and failures
all at once.
The terminus, in the distance,
looms, as yet unseen,
but there it lies – screened –
and, whether ready or not,
soon enough the road will stop.
Was it all you’d hoped,
this journey taken at a lope?
