Surely our paths were interwoven
Broken bridges floating upward
Defying every hasty decision
Whatever’s left still hurts

Move forward to find your bearing 
Leave behind the barren desert 
You cannot stop the ship from sinking 
Tarry not for fate to avert

The heart feels most in silence 
Mind mulls over outcomes inert 
Your will leads you in one direction 
The wind proclaiming an imperative rebirth


All the questions every answer ought eke
Edifying love, a life sentence seek
Reverence but lack of invention
Follow suit, hook line and sinker
Do what you be

Concerned by the lack of sympathy
Watered down in practiced sincerity
Semblance of a norm
Strangling the calm
Dance to your credibility

Opportunists enamor the chase
Groomed to detect the hacks in the race
Refined by the instruction of will
Stuffed till the cup fills
Drunken gullibility
