Farseekers
[Poem by S. David]

I am afraid
I fear
There I admit it
Does it make me
Less a man
Who hears
Who cares
And those few
Who do are
Relieved for
They too can
Speak openly
But we do
In the face of
Our trials
Danger
Sickness
Exhaustion
We do
It's true we
Are scared but
We fools
We farseeking fools
Are
On a raft
Not even a boat
Certainly not a ship
And to where
Ask each of us
We do not know
Just that we go
