Somewhere DOWN DEEP Down below

*Note by creator: This one particular exhibits the psychological upheaval and recovery process, the fatigued elated victory of 1 wall eroded absent when the realization that there is so substantially left to do sinks in.

Somewhere down deep underneath,

Feelings inside me multiply and sow.

The more durable, colder inner thoughts then increase,

And exterior, they are established to display.

Sticking to all four sides, they acquire manage.

Bouncing back and forth, the interior starts off an echo.

Resounding classes and sermons –

All blended up terms that reap confusion

As they bond and fill each hollow.

It sends a shadow down the forbidden route…

And then a person wall starts to erode.

Just one down, still countless numbers to go…

Slower, however steadier, the programmed thoughts stream.

This limitless battle has designed the slightest advance,

Behold! The cycle has surely started to slow!
