deeper waters

know when the waters

have become too shallow

and the seas

are too vast 

that it is no longer your time

to buoy

anchoring has kept you afloat

without being adrift


but when there are farther horizons

and deeper oceans

and they call

they call to your now adventurous

and brave spirit

you must know

the length of the chain

it will drag you under

when the anchoring

that once served you

the anchoring it becomes an anchor

an anchor that will drown you

drown you by its limits

then, now

you must set sail

you must

if the anchoring is too shallow

and you have become an anchor

One thought on “deeper waters
