The boundless leap

 

                The boundless leap


                   'I' am never alone

                   Yet the Mind yearn

                   To possess all that I love

                   Those that I cannot own




I reach out for the sky

Leap to seize the Sun

Though frail are my wings

and so weak is my leap


One more lesson I learn

One more trip and overturn

I bite the golden dust

and kiss my own failing feet


I rise up to lament

It's out of reach, I cry

I lick my bloodless wounds

and hug my bundle of rich rags


I keep counting my lessons

Not knowing the simple truth 

that the ape never leashed

Is neither not released


Once released, 'I' soar 

No limits no more

Boundless my belongings

Not a thing 'I' own
