Infinite Horizons

The horizon
What does it mean?

For each of us something different
And perhaps more then it may seem

There are those that see limitation
In various forms

There are those that see abundance
a place where new ideas are born

For those who seek
For those who want to know
There is a calling
The horizon tells us so

The truth is, that seekers always converge
And when they do, new dreams will emerge

We choose the horizon we see
We either see limitation
Or we see infinity
