The Horizon Belongs to Us

The Horizon Belongs to Us

A Poem by Benjamin Seymour

No harm befalls us
We are all; we are one
We alone are immortal

Our eyes reflect life
In its malleable state
Back upon itself

We stand, facing
Nothing but the ground before us
And in our youth
We accept no compromise

Our age knows no limits
Our capacity no ends
Our aptitude no weakness
We have no time
Our time is now

We rail at the stars
Every moment deserved
Every victory earned

When we cry
It will be for that which we achieve
We will look lions in the eye
And never cower
For we have their pride

And we stand, Giants
Possessors of our own destiny.

The horizon belongs to us.

The pride that is here is not arrogant but earned and perhaps inherited. It's the pride of the 300, the Roman Empire, the Native American. Strength, might, and heritage. Very well written!
