Goonies Forever

Let no one,
tell you what your destiny
is or isn’t,
or allow their criterion
to influence and determine
your course of being—
There is so much
inside you,
so much vast, unexplored
country which calls
for your footprints and courage,
to claim the wanderer’s
pitch-bright way
in a soul’s ceaseless asking
to be marveled in breadth, and known.
