Hope On The Horizon | A Poem by Ms Moem

A lone man walks an endless roadHope On The Horizon Poem
Uncertain where he’s heading.
He stares at the horizon,
Never looking where he’s treading.

Hours, weeks, and months pass by;
He starts to think it strange.
So many steps passed under foot
Yet the horizon never changed.

And so he came to pause a while
He sat and took it in.
The horizon was unreachable;
A battle he could not win.

But then he looked below him
To the ground on which he stood.
He turned, as though returning;
For a while he thought he would.

Then finally a vision;
An un-deniable inner voice.
Look how far you’ve come, my son;
Your journey. Your steps. Your choice.

Life’s horizon is not constant.
You might reach it in a blur
But never stop travelling onwards
Or never know how close you were.
