I stepped onto the boardwalk.

It stretched out before me,

Almost straight as a die…

And disappeared out of view.

It seemed confined and limitèd,

In such a huge, impersonal,

Yet beautiful landscape ,

It crossed my mind,

That it resembled

A metaphor of my life,

Without the twists and turns,

That characterise my soul’s journey,

To date,

I set out, undaunted,

To discover

Where it would lead me.
