A Beginning

Have you seen anyone
So deepened by despair?
Have you known anyone
So heightened by despair?

Sometimes, the ocean calls
For maddening actions-
Leading to suicides
And lost souls over time...

But someone dared to dream
To the universe's end,
Balancing on the edge
And diving to still waters.

He swam from reasoning
Til he could see no more...
He goes through the darkness,
And greeted by defenders.
