Headstrong

Hushed amongst the abundance of work,

Enveloped in obscurity of sheer confusion,

Amplified by the intangible consequences that lurk,

Deranged from the wonders of life’s illusion.

Suffering quietly, head bent in a quirk,

The pain dissolves in purple blue contusion,

Readily dip in the refreshing cirque,

Omitting the possibilities of negative anticipation,

Need not be afraid, need not even shirk,

Going the distance wrapped with inspiration.
