Leap Beyond

Leap Beyond



A leap beyond to new plateau

beyond beyonds we’ve come to know

gives rise to cosmic skies o’erspread

with dreams where dreamers scarcely tread

in firmament of indigo.


The mortals wed to status quo

of pomp and circumstantial show

afeared of drop below may dread

a leap beyond.


Yet some unmindful souls will throw

their fate into uncharted flow

by stepping out of common thread

to find their feet where others fled

ere death unbidden would bestow

a leap beyond.
