I sat there, at the edge of the peak of the growing mountain,
seeking the patience I had always lacked.

My dreams were older than Babylon,
Yet in the time that is now, I age.

I had walked the dashed line unaware of where it may lead.
Even it knew not the future with each added dash.

The naivety I know, cannot be undone, for where lies the knowledge I unknowingly seek out?
The tangent of my life's journey, irrelevant to the road once laid before my soul.

It is in the sleepless nights that my dreams find me most maliciously...
interrogating me as to my lack of persistence and pursuit.

And in my screams of the loss of sanity,
shot out the words of accusation to that accursed dashed line.

For it had found it's end here at the edge of the peak of my growing mountain.
It grew into the abyss of a night sky, and ominous was my anticipation.

The stars that as a child I had wished upon were closer than ever,
and they burned bright with suspicion.
A man who fears the future of his life, simply fears himself, and his God given plan.

Your poetry is amazing, man. Do you mind if I start a series of videos where I read them aloud?
