To chase futility

We foolishly chase

after that which

is not ours to possess.

Notions of perfection.

Striving for the clouds –

while wandering

on the shores

of our contradictions.

Hypnotized by

the ebb and flow of the waves –

while starkly refusing

to immerse ourselves

in the baptismal art of –

washing away

those lies that we tell.

Instead of using our tears as a conduit.

To cleanse the stains of our betrayal of self.

We opt for imprisonment –

versus being empowered.
