Core Struggles

Dealing with inner struggles.

Trying to get to the core.

So many layers.

The top layer so thin.

Like a mask, easy to break.

The deeper, the harder to navigate.

Must break through.


                                                                  

On to the weekend challenge. As you'll recall from your elementary science class days, the structure of the earth can be divided most simply into three sections: core, mantle, crust. Here's a diagram.
