~Transcending~

Updated on April 4, 2014

~Prologue~

Life's emerging peace.

"TRANSCENDING"

Through my mind is a vision of an unknown world,

cluttered with lifes unchanging hands.

If I stretch out my arms, I can touch the tips of

mountain peaks, and slide in the endless sands.

If I breathe deep, I can smell the intensity of life

in the brisk clean air, gliding against my cheeks

in moments of despair.

When my mind wonders, I find myself in the midst of an open field,

beckoning my own soul at will.

Long and steep are the memories past, foundations of a life barred by walls of concret, yet I rest my head on a blossom growing beneath my feet.

Youth has been ruptured into a maze of twisted confusion, to land on the steps of lifes illusions.
