He is One of Mine

He is partners with the night
& more so with life

He won’t return your calls right away
not because he is ignoring you
or because he doesn’t know what to say
but because he is distracted
Distracted by the walk of life
A walk he will never stop taking

He will never be stuck behind a big fancy desk
Not because he is incapable
but because he is
Capable of more than he may be willing to accept

He is care free
yet he worries
Worries that he is not embarking on enough
even though he is the paradigm of exceeding enough
He will continue to climb the highest of mountains
& he will push himself farther and harder each time
just for the view

Because life is his muse
he is one of mine

-For Andrew
