“Emerging from the east
Each rising of the Sun
Bringing a possibility of punishment
Chinese water torture
Only without the water
Droplets of memory falling onto your lap
The constant splatter annoying
Looking at a semblance of a life
Particles of joy leaving you glistening with satisfaction
Surrounded by murky waters
Tortured by destiny
The circumstances an unwilling servant
Executing heavenly orders
Nearly killing a weaker man…”

an excerpt from The Present,
