Scavenging our emotional landscape
for insights and aspects we’ve let
settle into obscurity within
our hearts for too
Be willing to shed the shell that no longer walks with the definition that you wear
A reminder of past characteristics that have become redundant
Be willing to grow the new shell with the required number of layers
In growing your shell, heed your own instincts and inner wisdom.
The opinions of the outer world matter little in this affair.
Obscure thoughts hidden inside the depths from time long ago
Regenerate and recreate new legs and new claws.
Be willing to let go of old ideas
and old gripping convictions
Leave a shell of magnificence and exquisite beauty where you have once passed
Scavenge the Deep
the unknown realms, the sea of the subconscious mind
Delve into the dark ink colored emotions….
