To Frontiers Faraway

A Poem by DoormanDan
"

A little reassurance for my parents, who are not yet ready for me to move out into the real world on my own

"
To Frontiers Faraway

Teardrops glissade down the driveway
As I depart for Frontiers Faraway
Your eyes, they betray your dismay
While also nurturing your acceptance
So, let me share some reassurance

I know that you're not prepared
I know you're sincerely scared
To let me surf those sulfuric skies alone
But you know that I'm aware
You know I know to beware
Of the perils predating between each milestone

I can do this on my own

I'm not carelessly confident
That my future will sing of opulence
Oftentimes, I'm incompetent
But we can only obtain sapience
Through the scoldings of each Consequence

I know that you're not prepared
I know you're sincerely scared
To let me surf those sulfuric skies alone
But you know that I'm aware
You know I know to beware
Of the perils predating between each milestone

I can do this on my own

Destiny is sometimes spontaneous
Whenever she's right, she can be erroneous
And we never know which half will greet us
Until we're already rising or taking a plunge
But fear not what lies in the midnarust
For you're gaining nothing by despairing in dust
Instead, give me every ounce of your trust
When I tell you I'm ready for whatever will come

I know that you're not prepared
I know you're sincerely scared
To let me surf those sulfuric skies alone
But you know that I'm aware
You know I know to beware
Of the perils predating between each milestone

I know that you're not prepared
I know you're sincerely scared
To watch me surf those sulfuric skies alone
But just know that I'll take care
With all decisions and dares
I make as I traverse every single milestone

I must do this on my own
Don't be afraid to let go
I will do this on my own

Author's Note

DoormanDan
Damn, I was so far into the writing zone, that I spent FIVE hours writing this in one sitting! Anyway, this piece is for my parents, to reassure them that I'm ready to finally move out and face the real world alone (which is what I'll be doing in less that half a year). Writing this piece was the most fun I've had writing any piece in over half a year! Anyway, as always, tell me what you think!

Oh, and it might be a while before I write anything again, as I start back at college on Monday. Until next time! :)

Some lovely language in this one, Dan.....

The repetition of your second stanza gives it the feel of a song lyric, more than a poetic piece, however, i suppose that was your intention; to reinforce the message to your parents.....that you will take your step into independence alone but with their blessing and guidance and all will be just fine.

This is a very relatable theme; we all do eventually take those same first steps into the big, bad world. It can be daunting but also exhilarating at the same time. It's a true rite of passage. No doubt armed with a cool head and the wisdom of your parents ringing in your ears, you will make this step a successful one for yourself.

A very nice write, Dan. Some great word choices used and generous in its self less execution.

I liked the energy and the drive of the poetry.
"I must do this on my own
Don't be afraid to let go
I will do this on my own"
I agree with the above lines. Sometimes, we must stop and re-set our journey. Thank you Dan for sharing the outstanding poetry.

This was a cute little letter to your parents. I like that you seem confident in your foray into the ever-frightening 'real world'. The only thing that threw me off was your font choice/color choice. It made everything seem more juvenile and not so serious.
