This is the second Varner poem I have posted. This one is from his second book Looking Beyond the Storm: Now the Rainbow is Out and is a cracking work. If you are looking for a book of poetry to add to your collection you should look for this one.
My eyes are fixed on what’s above
For to look below prevents my growth.
And should I fall, well that’s okay.
For when I recover, I’ll still stand tall.
The sky is limitless and calls for me
To jump, fly, to propel into its eternity.
The universe is the destiny of my dreams
And the keeper of my visions.
And as long as my eyes are fixed above,
My soul cannot be held down.
