Down Below

We are nature
Uniquely significant
Turbulent and original
Retrospective
In our shaping
And forward moving
By design
Forgoing nostalgia
For novelty
Where everything
Is here
Now
Living within
The divine spark
Of will
In the ruins
Of our discontent
With transparent seeing eyes
Within the grandeur
Of ordinary life
Toiling beneath the surface
Where we never
Quite belong
