Treasure Island

Maurice Harris

(29 April 1971 / Louisville, KY)

This Glory Is My Invitation


A new world awaits;
I, in concert with the fates,
Must embrace this journey-
My destiny awaits, for me!

I am not whole here, sans its light-
I shan't allow its fleeting, before my sight;
Stride into this resplendence, I must-
In its ever-benevolent purpose, I trust!

This glory is my invitation;
I await my long-sought elation-
In this place, at this time-
For this viage, I am prime!
This beauteous, life-long somniation
Waits for me, to impart its realization!

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
