Pointless Expansion - Poem by Daniel Richards

Building bridges on sandy shore
Breaking boundaries even more
Too meet new nations and then ignore

Building a raft we cannot reach
The honest truths on a glistening beach
Ferocious waves with misty peaks

Sinking deeper into the darkest depths
Holding on to those we’ve kept
We must let go for we’re inept

Water filling our every breath
Our cooling blood is all that’s left
As our soul is torn from its stirring depth
