    In my custody, eyes which accurately penetrate.
    Perception battle tested so I know how to differentiate.
    I unmistakably recognize the fine line separating love and hate.
    Effortless logical reasoning to me,
    What's real, what's fake.
    There lives too much confidence in me,
    So you can never complicate
    This understanding in me
    Because this clarity is my fate.
    I truly appreciate
    This wonderful state
    Of mind and being

    I feel like…

    I could sing off key
    And still hear a touch of beauty.

    I feel like…

    I could exist and in all honesty be happy with or without
    Love. Peace of mind uplifts.


    Once upon a time my vision was faulty
    My eyes were glazed over with negativity
    I didn't try, and thus couldn't see
    The capacity for good in all things
    I focused on the ugly
    In others and in me
    Now its apparent, the potential in all beings
    To commit deeds both cruel and seraphim
    And now I am able to tell the difference between
    Demons, angels, lovers, haters, and all in between
    False prophets now know and agree
    That it's futile to approach me with the lies they preach
    For
    With this new found clarity, my mind is well out of reach

    Yes, it does sound like you've found inner peace and clarity, and what a state of ease that must be, I liked the vibe of this piece poet.
