Rites of Passage

What might it be to see the rites of passage for a Viking daring to reach west not east and in so doing changes perceptions of possibility?

Rites of Passage
by Michael Doyle

As odd as it may seem
You have long been in my dreams
I have always dreamed of you
Though I should not confess this as true

Seldom have I been satisfied
With the flavors of life that I have tried
It is said that for knowledge
Beyond the doorframe's familiar edge

That Odin himself gave his eye
I would give more and will or I will die
Seeking my quest beyond and toward the West
Mine is yet seen but the truest test

A man is born for the fight
To guard his family and keep things right
As true as the Northern Lights
These moments are precious in my sight

Are dragon ships just dead things
Or mistresses of all that the sea brings
There is no worry to be had
Though the depths might make us sad
