past the horizon 

there’s a knack to knowing where you’ve been

but how far back could you see?

could you see past the distant horizon?

would you remember when you turned a different way

for fun

for the wind and sun

for anytime

would you know which way to go if it was dark?

if the world was filled with sound

or quiet?

in an instant 

could you know 

which way to go

would you trust yourself to know?

because if you could

you could go pretty far

you could know when to be calm

and when to work

and when to give more

when you needed to have more

to go distant into

past 

the horizon
