You who are looking only on the surface of things
know there’s a world beyond what this one tells you.

The secret within the mystery: dive into the well
you stand at the edge of, pearls glinting on the bottom.

Go on. Prove them wrong.
Strap on your gear and collect the underwater visions
seen only by the seeking.
