HERE IN THE LOST
(2/6/16)


finally
the fear
fades

the anxiety
subsides

the unknown
begins to color
to more familiar
shadings

we start
to sense
a comfort
in our newfound
surroundings

we are still
alive
after all

that much
is a constant

we just aren't
as smart
as what we
once thought

we look
around

we wonder

if our intelligence
can be
so easily skewed
by environment

perhaps
we have yet
to learn
what is important
