This weathered skin holds tethered sin

Adapting is not a means,
engagement drowned out
by the volume of their needs
from the bottom of the pack
to the top and back again,
and no lessons learnt on the way

The weakest thought pulled the rope taut

Catharsis is a dream
that's falling further
as the layers pull from their seams,
and the revelation of all we've hidden or denied
casts a shadow over all
we've hoped to achieve

All growth in vein
All words are stained
Purposeful abstain
for when the swell gives way...

Our fear and our doubt will remain
