It's not a sign of maturity
To shake your head and walk away
The concrete heart will never beat
Or feel the pulse of work and play

I'm over this.
No shallow dream
The boat scrapes the bottom of the stream
You can't dive
I'm half submerged
I might as well just travel to the sea

You gather up the empty frame
Bones and skin are awkward now
They can't be carried easily
And life has long abandoned now

It's not a brave enlightenment
To move from trusting God to crowds
To feel the fractured soul's lament
And have no wind to move the clouds
