Wellspring


I have this spring of water
Deep within my soul
And it gushes forth sweet and clear and pure
Flowing out of me in eternal waves

Sometimes the water is turbulent
And sometimes placid
But always pouring out generously
Joyous and laughing and sparkling

but you, you've put a stopper in it
you've dammed it up
and closed it off
clogged up the works with your vitriol
your neglect and disregard and spite
and the life that did grow because of the water clear
is shriveled and dead and dying
and I don't know why you did it

Desert
