I am finally standing at a threshold,
My maturing ass in gear
To embark on a lettered odyssey
Of human spheres and tiers.
With a pixelled pencil as my staff
A rucksack of words to mindprint thought
I am taking to the writing road
To seek out truths unwrought
Embarking on this journey
Certain I will never be coming back
To unwritten yesterlands of memory
And wordless panic attacks.
This unchartered course will lead
Through marshes muck and mud,
Dark caverns, caves and war zones
Ancient storms, and mythical floods
Swimming against Time's currents
And hurled against its tides
Metaphor will light my way
Alliteration will be my guide
And you who have chosen to read my words
And engage in inventive delight
Will create with me a poetry
Of your own prosodic right
