The Lost Boy

The lost boy
Jumped for joy at the
Dawn of spring
Watching the glorious beam of light
His sorrows largely forgotten

Like the wandering
Moon, he now makes his
Bid for survival
With the radical molecules of
Ambition flowing through his veins

One day, he
Followed his dream to the city
Searching for fame
And fortune but lost his way…
In the soulless heart of time

Yet, his
Fighting spirit remains
In the face of adversity…
His dream largely unchanged

And, now, his infectious
Smile continues to open the windows
Of opportunity
Dismantling the barriers unseen
And melting the hearts of stone
