Poetic Journey in Personal Discovery

A Slow Drip…

A slow drip,

quiet behind the scenes.

Amidst a sea of glass.


By a well constructed mask.

Fueled by strife

By the grumblings of this life,

By the self-seeking will

Which must be right.

Searching for validation

It can declare as home.

Steady drips abruptly shift,
Into crimson floods.
Unforgiving annihilation ensues.
Uncommitted to course or time.

The swirling torrent recedes
Sun illuminates the settled.
Revealing the wreckage,
Downed limbs and debris.

And the slow drip,
A whisper behind the scenes.
Amidst a sea of glass.
Smoothed by a well constructed mask,
Resumes it’s accumulation.
Forecast unknown…
