On a Winding Road

Far, far out

on a winding road

comes a woman walking

with a heavy load


With a heavy heart

and a heavy tread

she walks the road

where it has led


She’s all alone

but she’s not afraid

she walks in sun

and rests in shade


The road breathes dust

and crawls through mud

underneath her feet

and through her blood


And you think she suffers

‘til she hits her stride

and then you see

that the road’s inside.
