Hero’s Journey

No dwarves are knocking on my door –
No secret invitation.
I have no wizard on my side
To lead my life evasion.

My laptop screen is black as night
No blips to wake me up,
No hands outstretched with blue or red
To show the great set-up.

I have no skills at hunting game
That might secure my future
And that of all humanity
Awakening from its stupor.

My planet with its one sole moon
Is not in any danger;
My roomba doesn’t grace me with
A message from a stranger.

My muggle life is staunchly set,
No secret wizard skill.
No great, vile villain threatens
To pry me from my will.

My simple life is all there is,
No hanging on precariously;
Through screen and print I’ll have to live
My hero’s quest vicariously.

  1. Very, very nicely written.. Adventure comes in snippets.. High adventure is rarely experienced in one’s lifetime .. We watch action adventure flicks, read hair-raising novels, and for the most part, live vicariously through them..
