Deepest Sea

Written by: Chris Broyles

When at last there's no more to do
And everything says there's nothing left to be said
The whole earth weighs upon the shoulders
Relief is a million light years away
Darkness becomes a blanket
Even joy has found a place to hide
Everyone begins to laugh, saying what a fool
The ground a quagmire holding back the things I desired
Concrete walls blocking the hands from loved ones
For the theater of life shows a blank screen 
Of the achievements strived for
This is when one must climb the highest mountain 
To understand the depth of the sea
To really see the nothingness it really means
