McCandless (Supertramp)

There are thousands of empty caves

With enough room for your heart waves

And your love for Pasternak and Tolstoy

Guiding you through a rope of mortal coils


The road covered with determined footsteps

The world formed upon your own concept

The awareness of a society’s failed ID

Your choice to be footloose and fancy-free


Though the family cannot stop but wonder

Your absence made their heart grow fonder

And your sister’s tears of understanding

Keep you safe in the wild, undemanding


With merely one regret of the very few

The moose was more than you could chew

The hunter’s notes on a lonely day

The only living companion is your prey


A lonesome predator with no pack or herd

Human happiness only exists when shared

Forgiveness through years of solitude

One last breath from the northern latitude

P-chan (c) 2017
