Speed Limit…5

How could I possibly go slower?

Waiting for answers to questions which haven’t been asked.

For asking means a struggle,

Met with silence to cement the absence of leverage.

Leverage, to play for power?

I cannot wrestle with my treasure so close,

pulling the power to come back,

it all comes back.

So I take it.

I take the power that is rightfully mine,

I take it and send it out again,

and again.

Standing still while the chaos reverberates

Around me, moving to seek her level.

Which will not be found.

With new waves creating new energy,

tentacles exploring new creations.

but first, I must find the instruction book.
