Poem: Below Surface

Below Surface

Fool myself
Calm within distraction
“Moments” await in the quiet

Given to reflection
Hopes offer a promise
But disappointments will linger

With words of believing
Mark possibilities
Yet truth reveals the remoteness

A reckoning awaits
Frozen by the weakness
Death is in an absence of faith

Very good piece, Scott. I hope you're not feeling this way right now.
