  • I am not swept away
    uncertain times
    gloom and doom
    I see vipers looming
    their broken lives
    pretense and deceit
    I step into a swamp
    one foot in mush below
    other foot on steady ground
    I don't wink or blink
    their iced over glare
    and joyless stare
    I drill down into my self
    resources under control
    laughter deep in my soul
