A Shallow Pool

How do you find depth
in a shallow pool?
How do you face a world
so hateful and cruel?

How do you find meaning
when you're slipping below?
How do you stay
as pure as the snow?

How do you rise above
an earth so filled with wrong?
How do you make count
a life that isn't long?

How do you stop faking
and start trying to be true? 
How do you grasp purpose
when it's unclear what you should do?

How do you quit the game
and break the broken rule?
How do you find depth
in a shallow pool?
