NO, IT IS.

Current safe boundaries were once

     Uncharted frontiers intrepid fearless voyager

          Exploring remote vistas unknown spectrums

               Daredevil venturing alone without maps

                        >     >     >     >     >

               Drawing curtains back on ageless

          Life and lives he never

     Bothered caring enough about to

Touch or be touched by

<     <     <     <     <

Far removed world less distant

     After having moved there been

          Moved by constantly moving rarely

               Standing still getting caught up

                        >     >     >     >     >

               Unaware he was ever lost

          Though admittedly never saying so

     Navigating history not yet recorded

Searching for buried secret trust

<     <     <     <     <

Digging up bygone fragments of

     Eugenic legacy reduced to rubble

          What never really was has

               Been exiled to mere oblivion

                        >     >     >     >     >

               In limbo between rebirth <-> death

          Reprising beginnings with surprise endings

     Unforgiving past exultant revelatory future

Passage to next life booked
