I, Odysseus

Joshua Smith


Along a broken path I stroll,
And breathe in deep, but do not stall.

For as in part I bear the heat,
An unknown ground doth meet my feet.

Through eons passed I regret none less,
Than risking all, again I stress,

Where I have set my foot before,
I ne’er do walk for ever more.
