Beyond Comprehension


Silky smooth waters drift along
A maneuvering of currents is the waters song
Beneath the murky and sultry waters lie
An abundance of treasure which captivates the eye
Glistening peaks bring about endless pleasure
As gales of windswept waves grow in measure
The water reflects the emotions of the sky
And brings with it glimpses of days gone by
The minds perception is simply an illusion
Because beneath the surface is dire confusion
Just as is true in the daunting days of life
We don’t always recognize the causes of our strife
Underneath there is always something more
Perilous and ugly lurking in the depths of the oceans floor
