Cartographer's Dream


United States
33° 13' 48.3384" N, 117° 0' 31.6368" W

I am lost in the expanse of the night sky.
Forever wandering amongst the beacons of light that fill this endless Cartographer's Dream.
Waking only to forget what I have learned.
Watching myself make the same mistakes more than a few times.
Never unable - always unwilling
To break the cycle-
To wake to be the strong warrior I am in that sea of light.
Naked I stand before my very self
And only rediscovering the steps I have taken when I fall to that waking abyss.

I am strong.
I am the Warrior.
But only, it seems, to that beautiful Cartographer's Dream.
