The Boundless Leap

'I' am never alone

Yet the Mind yearn
To possess all that I love
Those that I cannot own

I reach out for the sky
Leap to seize the Sun
Though frail are my wings
and so weak is my leap

One more lesson I learn

One more trip and overturn
I bite the golden dust
and kiss my own failing feet

I rise up to lament
It's out of reach, I cry
I lick my bloodless wounds
and hug my bundle of rich rags

I keep counting my lessons
Not knowing the simple truth
that the ape never leashed
Is neither not released

Once released, 'I' soar
No limits no more
Boundless my belongings
Not a thing 'I' own
