What Lies Within?





Deep, deep
Search your soul..
Is there really depth there?
Or a surface so fragile
So easily broken

Shallow, shallow
Waters of your ego
Behind a mask
Drenched with tears
Hides a frightened child

Tread, Tread
Currents carry you
To places you seek strength
Merely an Illusion
Wasted time
What you seek, lies within

Tracy said...

Thank you so much for your kind words!

Poetry is a frustration for me. The inspiration comes sporadically! Who knows, perhaps this is spurt!

deep deep the sleep
in day's shadow brings
vivid tales to remember
and tales to forget
with life of their own
and unexpected surprise
while dancing colored patterns
sing within my
woken startled eyes
