Swim in the sea road

without horizon

nor compass knowing

you are ever

only swimming


Dive beyond the depths

care less the fathoms

pressing you insignificant

seeming bound

for you




breach through the weighty darkness

your currency of story

casting you finite

fated forever



And discover glory

    Your diction is surprising, just as poetry ought to be. I find myself more compelled by how you structured this one, and chose the words, than by other poems on the same theme. It takes a deep truth, self-imposed restriction as lifelong shackles, and turns it into an anthem of freedom. Like, actual freedom. Not just liberty. How absolutely marvelous. "Dive beyond the depths care less the fathoms pressing you insignificant seeming bound for you" My favorite part. "Pressing you insignificant" and "care less the fathoms" just sound so profound. The meter in them is beautiful.
