Eternal Pursuit


I have grown to be my mother’s son
but not for you
growing up to be who I’d be
so wrong and true
in your sight
in my flight
in pursuit
I have walked upon the ocean floor
but not for me
swam through waters swinging door
springs ever be
in the ground
in the sound
in pursuit
I have flown beyond gravity’s grasp
but not with you
soaring passed the star’s explosions
of flash and hue
sailing deeper into darkness
into light
into night
in pursuit

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
