I have heard the trumpet as it called me in,
Calmed the killers in the lion’s den,
Whispered secrets to the wind.
Spied the cat behind the Cheshire grin.
I have sailed solo through the stars,
Sliced my way through prison bars,
Jailed dreams in mason jars,
The struggle left unsightly scars.
I have seen myself through others’ eyes.
Buried truths behind my lies.
Saw angels fall through scarlet skies.
Seen heroes fall and villains rise.
I have climbed the highest mountain’s peak.
Fetched the feather from the raptor’s beak.
Struggled boldly week-by-week.
But have not found the thing I seek.
