Frost Finish

I often wonder if it is appropriate to show raw emotion in a goal-driven world. Will I be seen as weak or stupid? Emotional manipulation has been couched in a refined term called emotional intelligence.

A frost starts covering the core of an individual, as soon as they learn this coveted art of emotional intelligence. I am not sure if the emotions buried underneath will come to life again, or be resurrected in a different form. Spring and summer will bring forth a brined, processed version called maturity.

Only infants give me hope, till they grow up.

terror of winter

life buried under snow

makes spines shiver
