One True Thing

one true thing
I take seriously
I go after it
sharpening it up
come rain or come shine
even if nobody knows I care for it

I wouldn't even notice weather and season change
that much I concentrate on it

a bird spots me chirping
someday I'll be found in a warm sunshine

every star in the sky has no boundary
rain has no boundary to move
waves come toward me
I swim against them
I'll take my pace not to get tired, not to give up going further

and I hope I will learn
spring has no boundary
I try to look around
lights get my eyes black out

what I am about to see next
hopefully it is spring
my first spring
