Root Quest

image borrowed from bing

Root Quest

he walks with staggered step
an uneven broken cadence
for he stumbles with the sins
of his unknown father

resigned to the weight that presses
and bears him bent in melancholy
he does not waver from his path
nor hesitate in his journey

for his stride is for more than one
whose fate he does hold aloft
and through whose pulse and heart
his lifeblood now courses in kind

each step keeps the dream with breath
that over the approaching rise
he will encounter the enigma
which is his fire and source
