One step

Sometimes,
Under the pale light of the moon

After gazing at the distant unfamiliar stars
And imagining our future among them

My eyes stray back down to Earth
And the horizon beckons

Through my mind images flash,
Vibrant cities and dormant country sides

Some part of me goes off beyond
Person to person
World to world

Some people are just coming home
Other’s dream

Smiles dart around
As fast as frowns

Worldly worries and local problems
Change

But these I hardly feel
Because expressions of joy
Displays of love

Drown my senses

Small grins on small faces
Laughter

A baby’s first giggle
Warmth from a cat

Knowledge of generations
In a young ones mind

Across the planet small worlds awaken
It’s their day now

The horizon calls,

Light shines from beyond,

The darkness hides all obstacles,

I wonder to myself…

What if I took one step?

One step

Artist's Description

I really do this, and one day when i’m older, i’ll gaze across the dark landscape… hop on my bike, or a car, or use my feet and just go where ever my feet take me.

P.S. how you should read this is with a pause for thought between each line, when u get lower scroll slowly… it makes more sense then
