Poem for Mandy

For Mandy

To see beyond the sky is
beyond my skill.
The sky is my ceiling just as
the Earth is my floor.
To see beyond the sky
surpasses my skill.

To think outside my mind
is outside my reach.
My mind has it's borders just as
my body has it's point of exhaustion.
To step outside my mind
transcends my reach.

To trust beyond my faith
exceeds my abilities.
My trust can only walk within
the footsteps my faith has left behind.
There is no trust beyond my faith.

So, to see beyond my eyes
I'll use imagination.
To stretch the borders of my mind
I'll study and question.
To increase the footsteps of my faith
I'll surrender.

For, to live within this world
is not my goal.
