I don’t usually do this but the following poem is one I just wrote in my personal journal for poetry. It feels right to share though. Feel free to leave comments and thoughts:
Smoke is billowing out as it
Spins and dances to my eyes
I drink it all in
Life has become fully steeped
Saturated to its fullest capacity
Revelations are pronounced
Truth is heard by every ear
Am I happy in this existence?
What has gone awry and why do
Children continue to expel cries
I swore all had finally been set right
Where then does this emptiness arise?
My two ears have found the Truth
My own heart is captivated by the proof
My body has been so terrifically healed
Yet all around others are still crippled by fear!
Scars of hurt run across every single vein
Ears have been deformed, lips sealed shut
No Freedom to be heard, no Liberty to be spoken.
Experience first hand is all that is known
I feel so whole, content…and alone
Resting in my hands is Their demise
I’ll watch idly by, “Enjoy the taste of lies.”
