Horizons - Poem by Barry Middleton

I can't know where I go
until the journey's end
horizons hide in mist
that I cannot suspend

I search to find the lamp
the story I was told
but fog obscures the night
and I am tired and old

I see no shinning view
for death to consecrate
horizons are like walls
beyond them lies my fate

the earth eclipses hope
my vision curved by space
I spin among the stars
to find my resting place

as I peer back through time
recalling every turn
I am forbid to know
the light for which I yearn
