story that needs to be told

he rode the tides
for the boats to follow
he covered the sands
so that the footprints
be recognised
he swam the
seas of fear
he scaled
the ineffable moutains
of disappointments
he painted the sky
while speaking to the birds
each urging him
to spread his own,
he took the delight
on the faces of children
trapped in the bottle
just in case,
he holds dreams
of a generation
in lines of his palm
he bares
the scars of a warrior
for the soldier
was destined to
never return from the war,
he overheard
the whispers of the streams
distinguish among
all the 26 shades of grey
gave open book exam
with questions at the tabernacle
weaver of a million labyrinths
he holds the pen
with the same hand
that rocked the cradle of struggle
unfold
like a book; is
story that needs to be told.
