Steps- Michael Erickson


Photo by Michael Erickson

Ascension is what I seek,

Progression forward.

I crave illumination,

So far from my reach.

With mortal breath,

My soul drifts through weakness.

Bone filled with corruption,

Seeks renewal.

To thrust my consciousness upwards,

A higher plane must be reached.

Push upon the limits of this existence,

As clouds wreathing this world.

One foot fall at a time,

With a mouthful of humility.

A lifetime of failure,

Paving forth a foundation of eternity.
