Wayward Worlds (poem)

Updated on July 18, 2013

Wayward worlds unfold

Upon a path less trodden

Where every sign you see

Is waiting for a hand

To write them


To tell another

That it’s okay to wander

Beyond the safety

Whose comfort often holds them back

To the sideline seats


Cheering cherished heroes

Who live some wished for life

Beyond reality’s restraints

Timeless is their motion

Timeless are their ways to wonder


Till twilight calls a dream

Of a yearning long forgotten

Some signs as yet unwritten

One more hope one more chance

To start a new beginning
