Shallow Certainty-Sperantia Zavala

Take me higher, so far away

This toxic place was never meant for someone like me

Despair chained by merciless desolation

An emptiness that is suffocating

Stinging tears, each formed of crippling isolation  

True love can set me free

Yet, bleeding dysfunction is dripping all over me  

I glimpse a distant doorway leading me somewhere else

My only comrade on this lonely journey is hope

Shallow certainty this life may transform for the better

One day my wishful heart will escape from here

Discontent, you cannot drag me down forever

  1. Sperantia I really love this piece! The juxtaposition of hope in the midst of hopelessness is a beautiful snapshot that we are subjected to at times in our life. Thank you for sharing.
