Setting Sights

Fresh off the boat –
ready for feast or famine
or flood or fire
or war or peace
or heaven or hell…
whatever this new shore may bring

ready to sing
ready to dance
ready to seize
the day
and turn this cold grainy perception
into a bright dawn
of blazing red fresh perspective

ready for riches
or the big bust
ready for glory
or a yawning grave
ready to cast off
what’s been left behind
and fully embrace
an unknown path into the future


Setting Sights

Manifest destiny
across the seventh sea
has brought us
to the precipice
of great uncertainty

yet we are ready
come what may
for it all
