Dreaded Destination

Progression of life,
In an irreversible fashion,
Joyous ride,
Dreaded destination.

Unperturbed façade,
Calmness of demeanor,
Always unruffled,
To the undiscerning observer

A dormant volcano,
Not yet extinct,
Sense of impending disaster,
Unresolved yet distinct.

Peaks never scaled,
Depths unplumbed,
Life lived on a plateau,
Senses apparently numbed.

Appearances deceive,
Ostensible plateau,
Calm before the storm,
Heated lava below

The dread justified,
Release inevitable,
Deconstruction will follow,
Its magnitude unfathomable!
