Embrace the fallen

Embrace the fallen

Eruption of contrasts
Flailing at a sequence ventured

Vigorous, erratic expiration.
With an unforeseen determination, must carry on 

Our destination, awaits a new discovery.
Untold, unwarranted, unintentionally I find myself forgotten.

Moving forward, we become invisible to the naked eye,
Those who wish to walk among us, must stagger without assertion.

Foreign to what we once knew, uncharted, without guidance, 
We find ourselves seeking the unknown.

Stained, yet shaded from the worlds innocence
Wavering in a hue of undetermined shapes & deceptive countenance. 

Descending, reduced, to but a child’s whispers, 
Lingering in the depth our own subconscious.
