labyrinth

June 10, 2012

Searching for a future lost
Mirage shimmering on the horizon

Sometimes cast as open sea
At others a darkened abyss

Opportunity, chance, destiny
Who decides?
Can I?

Should I grip the tiller firm
Or is the current too swift

Is my past an experienced guide
Or only a porter of familiar mistakes

Doubt and conviction trade places
And their dance leads the way

The future is not a point beyond reach
It encompasses all that remains

And the dance not to it’s detriment
But life itself


Damon Maria lives in Auckland, New Zealand. Toying with artistic pursuits in a desperate attempt to keep the rational and rigid at bay.
