Against the Fissure

join hands

grip tight

while the ground splits

the rift expands

splintering tectonic weight

rumbling in low register roar

rolling ‘neath uncertain feet


a coil of rough hewn ribbon

erecting new

rock faced monuments

against the pressure


if we can hold on long enough

we can weather the


before us

the worst is


Mitchell Chmielewski

I currently reside in Indiana where I am taking classes through Penn State University to complete my Bachelors in Finance and work for a non-profit clinic. I was always passionate about reading and writing and I intend to use this blog to hone my craft and to entertain others. Please feel free to reach out and provide feedback or to discuss my work.
