Locked away in the subtleties of my consciousness
drifts the pain of emptiness,
that serenely floats upon the troubled waters of my mind.
Soiled from the drudgery of everyday living
I’m stained in the sheerness of materialistic endeavors,
as I’m poised upon the remnants of tattered dreams.
Scarlet ribbons line the sky at twilight’s gleaming,
as fiery fingers trace the outer edges of solemn clouds aglow.
I’m enshrouded in the stillness of my complexities,
as I search out the hidden answers to realms undefined.
Whither I go I know not,
for life is hinged upon eternal truths
that governs my painful steps along the narrow pathway set before me,
toward a more promising future from paradise lost
as destiny unfolds its cleansing power
upon this dismal scene of a lost soul,
shackled in chains of uncertainty.
