The world is my oyster? Well that’s not enough

My mind is castles, with spires reaching up

They pierce the atmosphere and escape our insignificance

They are infinite, ever growing, changing, learning

They have morphed into the stars

The galaxy is their home, yet firmly rooted into Earth

Each floor is a new me, layers growing into infinity


I move along the spiral stairs, never tiring, I’m floating

There are no walls, just stars outside

They beckon me and I wave back

I know them all by name, I’ve lived here for so long

They shine for me and I dance for them

Their flickering is my beat, my song

These stairs are infinite and I want to keep climbing

It's never enough, I want to see more

Who would settle for an oyster when the ocean is still unexplored?
