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
