Did you follow the link in the description box? It is the story of a man who actually walked around the world. It took him four years and like four months to do so. Or, " just over four years". I was being literal.

It's actually a buried rhymes sonnet -- 14 lines if you look closely, with an ending volta couplet of sorts. I don't like end line rhymes, hence what I think is a more natural expression of such a normally strict form.

To answer you about the linebreaks, I wanted it to be undulating and rhythmic. It looks good on the eye and it also imparts a psychological angle (to me, anyhow).

In case you're interested, that poem was a continuation of this poem -- a second part, if you will. Yes, it's mine -- just on another older ID. Ha.

Anyway, I can keep rambling but I won't.
Thanks for your thoughts, and welcome to ES

Heya. Thanks for the comment. I do believe you misunderstood the poem. Of course I can't tell you exactly why or about what becasue there would be no fun in that. I'd suggest dig deeper...poems should be read more than once if you want.

A hint: think in terms of what I am really comparing.
