#6 – Joy Boy


I said a prayer for the earth
As I watched this child’s violent birth
I saw a mother’s pain give way to joy
As she shed tears for her little boy

I set forth to combat disorder
As I cast my treasures to Davy Jones’ locker
I dreamt of satellites and space cars
As I navigated the seas by way of the stars

We shed tears while the waves beat the shore
For we knew we were at the edge of something much more
We shed tears gazing into the dawn
For the one with us who could never hold his son

We were sailors in search of intangible gold
We were men following the tales and legends of old
Becoming that man who walks his final mile
Greets his death as he did his life, with a smile
