Flickering light dances across the flat surface of water.
My focus drawn toward crystal shaped shades.
A low white wash rolls closer to the shoreline.
I watch as the sand near my feet draws the wash downward
Into the unknown
Disappearing to the inner world of a micro life.
The sky an immaculate blue
Superiority in size
Envelops my soul
The time has come to let go
Of long processed attitudes
And the predilection to self-harm the mental state
Feigning strength to overcome internal weakness
Hiding the truth from those close at hand
My adaptability in crisis situations
Is in the mask that I wear
A mask that I now remove
To reveal the inner mechanisms
Here I am exposed
Of the external world
But not defeated
