A Return

An uphill struggle on uneven ground
Familiar, but out of reach recollection
Ideas that have no place or soil
To be strange in a stranger land

The forgiveness of novelty value
Paying the dues of lost time
The temerity of escape and change
But the welcome of failure

A return to homeostasis
With the untrusted eyes of an outsider
The pointlessness of make work
Does not reduce the struggle or achievement

“You can never return home”
A mantra for those building Babel
Toil and creation, motive and myth
The hill has still to be climbed and overcome

One doesn’t traffic in redemption
