Poem: “I saw a man pursuing the horizon” by Stephen Crane

The following is what I interpret to be about what the naysayers do and say in order to hinder one from pursuing their dreams. Those naysayers claim that they’re speaking up because they’re looking out for the individual’s best interest. However, the dream seeker  acknowledges he/she knows better about their dreams, especially because it’s their own dream.

Also, in regards to the following poem, if one pursues the horizon long enough, doesn’t he or she eventually get there?;-)

I saw a man pursuing the horizon
by Stephen Crane

I saw a man pursuing the horizon;
Round and round they sped.
I was disturbed at this;
I accosted the man.
“It is futile,” I said,
“You can never-”

“You lie,” he cried,
And ran on.
