No Title

Parallel life in an upside-down world
Different objectives, different perspectives
Into oblivion
I’m hurled

Two halves of the whole pried apart by design
Similar intention, similar retention
Toward my destiny
Serpentine

Divine intervention o'er the conquering hoard
Absolute clarity, absolute purity
Into eternity
I’m poured

  1. This piece started with a purpose in mind, then went awry from the original thought. I don't think this one is done yet. The basic idea was to convey the futility of a person trying to live by their own rules, possibly contrary to or without their faith, weaving their way through life while dealing with that dichotomy of self, and finally reconciling it to realize their purpose.
