Ponder Existence- Michael Erickson

Leave me to ponder words of existence,

For my voice has left upon the wind.

Footprints lead me to the edge,

As the known world ends before my eyes.

What is left in the fading light is unknown,

And there my thoughts now go.

Let my skin feel a breeze move round the world,

As my feet ground against solid stone.

Upon these cliffs do I stand uncertain,

And wait for this mind to still.

Will my voice return upon this wind who knows,

Leave me to ponder words of existence.
