Stay Deep

Go Deep Stay Deep
I have discovered that I can actually hold my breath
far longer than I ever believed
To find the magic, I hold it a little longer

Go Deep Stay Deep
The diamonds are always buried beneath
the coal, the iron ore, and the sedimentary layers of irony
A life destroyed is a life rescued

Go Deep Stay Deep
There comes a point where
Potential must be weighed against
The impossible, helpless, and gravity

Go Deep Stay Deep
Sacrifices and trade-offs always
factor into crossroad decisions
Souls open for bid and hire

Go Deep Stay Deep
Bet, raise, or call
Stay and work or run far, far away
Like the lottery, only winners play
