Detritus is organic matter produced by the decomposition of organisms. It can be described as waste or debris of any kind. Detritus is that which is discarded due to corrosion. There are many forces which corrode not only physically but also psychologically and emotionally. In many cases it is this emotional decay which leaves us deficient of the strength of our walk in gaining our destiny. There are many things which could be perceived as detritus in our lives. Be it political injustice, financial circumstance, ancestral inheritance or even unfair perception, these all take a concerted conceptual re-evaluation to overcome. Faith produces work. Love produces labour. Hope produces patience (perseverance). It is here that I have found the idea of “retritus”. It is that Hope which produces the perseverance to change or transcend the conceptual decay.
