The Little Boy

the little boy stood mesmerized
lost as he ponders of the frontier to cross
slept as he dreamed of the unknown
awoke as he tumbles in a new land

the little boy talked to his heart
found an image of peace
looked at the reflection of it onto himself
trembled as the rays penetrated his body

the little boy sat pensive in the night
talked as he was confused
asked for deliverance
lamented as he prayed for guidance

the little boy got a late surprise
came as vibrant white in the dark
glowed red underneath the bow
trembles as he sweated of emotion
