if you seek out the story
you find out
the path is not the same for everyone or anyone
you can wake up to the fact
that the desired goal is the end
of the meaning we seek in life
the desired destination is not the
place where the river begins but where it ends
like standing on a whale fishing for minnows
we are too often obsessed with the
meaning of the story without seeing through the metaphor
not everyone has the fixed star above the horizon
asked for you to see me a thousand times
you walked into fire inside the sky 900 times
and you said maybe 99 times
but the one time you nodded yes
is good enough for me
