Efforts in motion tell stories from the root.
These moments are fleeting because of the boot.
Its armoured and toughed and stings like a knife.
Especially when it bites into my shins during night.
But ignore the teachings and you might fall flat.
Not an easy fix to bring yourself back from that.
I’ve done it a few times and still bare the scars.
Most meanwhile end up trapped with life behind bars.
Though the evidence is thin it could be enough.
At which point your relationships can turn to rust.
Decay like fruit left out in summer sun.
You know how little those temperatures tend to be fun.
