Fountain of Youth

The well looks dry.

Be still,

hear the water,

still running beneath the surface.

You must dig deeper.

 

The water is.

Cool and clear,

while the mud is in our eyes,

and hearts,

and minds.

 

Our hands,

must tear the soil,

to unearth that precious blood,

the life giving flood,

that cleanses the world unseen.

 

The light may burn,

when your eyes first open.

The darkness of mind,

is consumed.

Ashes of vanity scattered by the wind.

 

Drink deeply.

Saturate your soul till it bursts

its paper constraints.

Drink not for granted.

You may yet drown in your own ambition.
