The sky opens up before me
An untrod path and pilgrimage
Bring me the horizon in a cup.
The stars trace roads and hignways
No one has ever traveled
And their stories go untold night after night.
A million miles lay between me and destiny
With only old songs for company
And the challenge of an endless summer sky
Stars spin and burn and shine rudely on sleepers
They dance without a thought or care
How can I not follow?
With every step I leave a little more of my life behind
The fire burns hotter in me, scorching away all traces of my past
And with every step I’m a little more myself, a little more alive.
