<b>  ~ What Lies Beyond ~

Has anybody ever wondered
Or do we all try to forget
What strange things lie over yonder,
So we don't have to chase the sunset?

Mounds and mounds of written word
Describe that line of wondrous sky,
And how it looks rather absurd
Yet no one ever questions why?

The reason the horizon's there
Is not to please in ignorant bliss,
It's really a terrific dare
That there's more in life than simply this.

While the simple charm of home's adored,
I'd always regret that godly sight
If the edge of earth I never explored;
I'd rather burn up in its light.
