Vast Horizon (poem)

Updated on February 1, 2015

I wandered vast horizons

Of things that just might be

Urged on by the voices

Who fed the spirit of me

-

Marvels were excited

Which soon became common place

Unwritten rules were challenged

Which few have dared to trace

-

The sunrise of their purpose

Would find my shadow there

Feelings they would vote on

Where paths which I prepare

-

And on and on I wandered

Lead by footsteps of some past

My own imagination

Toying with our memory

-

Was this could this be the verge

Others lost had once searched for

Confused and bewildered as I

Seeding others’ destiny

-

Then I turned around alone

Crying to faithful echoes

Of faces with reasons

Who could no longer follow

-

Rage rage rage took my vision

As the specter of clouds

Masked the path to the unknown

And the safety of the route back

-

Then from the vast horizon

Of things that just might be

Urged on by a blessed voice

Who fed the spirit of me

      I think that this might be my favorite one of yours. Although I admit I do enjoy the chuckles your limericks bring.
