Much Deeper Than What Is Shown

There are layers of living one's life,
Complex.
That will not be easy to peel away to reveal...
What has been lived as one might suspect!

To scratch beneath a crust thought thin,
With a hope to match,
A few moments given...
To a belief thought easy to satisfy,
A curiosity to probe and pry...
Can not be applied!
Not to this specimen...
Thought to be light,
Of a wind...
One can stand against and defend.

There are layers of living one's life,
Complex.
That will not be easy to peel away to reveal...
What has been lived as one might suspect!

That which appears to sit alone as stone...
May show what's on a surface,
Something much deeper.
Much deeper...
Than what is shown!

Deeper, deeper still...
Than what is believed to be known!
