In Each, There Is All

in the last and gentle footsteps of the one i've waited for
in a slow and simple memory of the ocean
in the genuflecting promise of what may yet be in store
in the promise of forever from a woman
in the frozen subway turnstile and the blood upon the floor
in reluctance taking new paths laid before them
there is peace and there is promise
there is dark and there is war
there is free unhinged and lawless
there is safety and the shore
for in each there lies the all
and on this truth you can rely
for in each there lies the all
just as all that lives
must die.
