The faded morning
of the sun
to the eyes of one
simplified but magnified
a trillion times
mystique, complicated
unique, comprehended
non could touch the stars
or blink for a moment without
your hands trembling
showing to the south
as the journey departed
the praying goes on
half hearted heroes
keeping strong
for a road
that leads back home
