DRIFTING

Republished by Blog Post Promoter

When we are confronted by the possibility that everything we’ve learned in life could be a lie, how do we “know” what we think we know?

SEA OF LIES

FLOATING ON AN ENDLESS SEA
OF QUESTIONS AND UNCERTAINTY.
DRIFTING ON AND IN A FATHOMLESS ABYSS:
A TINY PLANET FLOATING IN THE SKY.
OUR NAKED FLESH CANNOT SURVIVE
THE AIRLESS COLD ON EITHER SIDE.
DRIVEN BY WINDS OF CHAOS AND REALITY
WE STEER OUR TINY BOAT OF LIES
TO SUSTAIN OUR FRAGILE LIVES
FOR AN INSTANT IN ETERNITY.
WHO NAVIGATES THE BRUTAL TIDES?
ARE WE OUR ONLY FRIEND AND GUIDE
WHILE SAILING THROUGH INFINITY?
