The Edges of the Sky

The Edges of the Sky

You must reach towards
the edges of the sky.

Beyond the horizon
of a timid
imagination.

For if you don’t,
you may as well
round your
shoulders
and shuffle lifelessly
towards a cold
unwelcoming grave.

Such is the consequence
of uniform ambition.
And not reaching
for the edges
of the blue blue sky.
