The Future

FREE WRITING

A moment without the pull of the dream - unimaginable
A day without the push of the mission - impossible
Forever it has been
And Forever it shall be
The light at the end of the tunnel.

Every honorable quality I admire in those above me is held in the pin
The great Globe and Anchor
The one I will one day wear on my own collar
And one I will Forever hold with Pride.

Following the trail of those...

With something new,
With something that no longer wants to hide.

The sun and the stars line a road so bright it’s blinding
The paths split and twist and turn, begging for unwinding
The leaves of trees and a light’s glare

Weeping

FREE WRITING

Some words were spoken, but I could not make them out;

For names I never knew.
