Look Deeper

Little pond, you look so shallow,
that's what others think of me,
a trickle
just a small reflection
of who they are,
a illusory projection
of who they wish
I would be.

Like you, my depths disappear
into the dark, dank, bottomless deep
accessible only to those
who swim
in the same mysterious waters.

to those
who sleep.

Swim in my depths I implore you
Seek out the mystery locked deep in my heart
Know that there's wisdom and essence
if only you dare
if only you'd care
to find what is there.

Be brave,
be your own light
explore in my dark.
