Into Discovery

written by: Ken Allan Dronsfield



When you have risked it all
just to have a taste.

When you have feasted on victory,
and swallowed defeat.

When you've achieved ambitions,
yet still felt unfulfilled.

When you realized it's not
about what you own, but more
about what you experience.

When you see the sun on the
horizon, or the rising full moon
Can you feel the unrelenting pull?

When wonder and the quest
becomes the need to explore.

Take the time to praise your God
and seek the rare and the unknown.

Desire the path less trodden
and perceive an elation of spirit.

Let your dreams find adventure.
hoist your great white billowing sheets,
sail into the rising sun. Into Discovery!
