The world was so big.
And I was so small.
Waiting for my father to come home
and rescue me from the day.
The sky was endless
And my dog held eternity in his eyes.
Even at that young age
I sought answers of what I was to become.
My eyes were lost in the clouds
And I tried to see beyond them
Knowing that my steps needed to stand
on the tops of their vapor facade.
The world that held my body
was not the plane that birthed my soul.
My young heart longed to battle dragons
and risk all that it was to find answers.
Have you heard the hollow claws of destiny
as they slice past your head in the dark?
I fall asleep as my mind slips among the answers.
