Get Past It

Challenger Deep
(November 2004)

A microcosm of life
For if you think we’re skin deep
The treasures you’ll miss
’Cause even the unknown
Can flicker with a shimmering light

Challenger Deep is the deepest section of the Mariana Trench in the Pacific Ocean, which is home to the Marianas Islands. A Royal British Navy ship- the The HMS Challenger- was the first vessel to explore the area, henceforth the location was named for that vessel. This poem signifies how much in each of us is unknown. We as a society act on superficial urges and premonitions, and all too often fail to seek out true depth and breadth of character and soul within another individual.
There is life at the bottom of this trench, and although microscopic and simple in life-form; it exemplifies the fact that you never know what you’ll find when you dare to look beyond the surface.
