His father was the archetype
A mythological symbol
A re-occurring motif
Of a mythology of manhood

He was the lost boy.
Lost in his father’s dream
Lost in his father’s story
Lost in a prison of choices

One day a man showed the boy
A map.
A map towards a new story
A map towards a new beginning
A map towards a new life
A map towards a new choice

The boy became a man
The man became an archetype
An archetype of a new story
An archetype of a new beginning
An archetype of a new life
An archetype of a new choice
