DestinyA Poem by Doodley
The great unknown.
Could it be my destiny,
To drift alone on a cloudy sea?
To cut ragged swaths through grassy plains,
To dance alone in Autumn rains?
To gaze in thrall into the Polaric eye,
As I stand alone beneath a starry sky?
Or could it be my destiny;
To be the soul of flame in eternal fire,
To rage alone and forever higher?
Or to kiss the sun with my jagged beak,
Atop the world alone as a mountain peak?
Or shall I be forever alone,
A gargoyle sentinel of timeless stone?
I do not know. I cannot say,
So I travel along my winding way;
Until Life's dusk in her fading light,
Illuminates my mind to a greater height,
And with infinite wisdom will then I know,
If the point of destiny was to come and go.
