who knows what lurks
beneath the murky waters
of self-perception
and self-deception…
are we the product
of a previous existence?

are we children
of a greater being or
insignificant ripples
in a primordial mist?

wrestling the darkness
waiting for sleep and
a glimpse of other realms,
we pray for continuation
and bury our skeletons
in fleeting ethereal graves
