in due fashion

upon this journey anyone can join
with those who venture far beyond the line
across oceans through valleys serpentine
for wages that are paid in more than coin
the sort of reward no thief could purloin
a kind of surety that won't decline
in value or in meaning that is fine
in places where the boundaries adjoin
no one who chooses can deny their stake
in answers given in an honest mode
by those who knowingly have cut the cord
not out of anger but for freedom's sake
and taken their worn hearts out on the road
letting all resentments go by the board
