Diving In

A droplet of hope,

drifting down my cheeks,

or remaining in the crease of my almond eyes.

Sinking into a sea of demise,

My essence an obvious disguise,

that I am living in a world shaken,

loving from a heart that's breaking,

keep going, keep creating,

sleepless & awakened,

simply existing in a world,

that's forsaken.
