yeah adults should know better....
but some people want company for their misery....
dope poignant piece my brother.....
You hit the nail on the head, this is just when we get programmed ...as a kid. So, sadly, you don't need help seeing...cause you just said it all.
I feel every word of this poet...great piece!!
It's been said that we have to hit rock bottom, before we can truly began that climb to the top. And when we find that we have tried everything, when the eyes are blind and the third eye can't see, that's the time to fall on our knees and plea to thee. Surely, he will pull us up, and give us divine sight!
Beautiful write brother.
u defined went through a journey of searching chaos, truth and sanity in this rippling piece. I could definitely use this one....
feeling you on this you said a mouth full
Here! Right here!
Let’s draw a line
and reach an understanding
that we look beyond the veil
and stare into the truth
Facing down hell and more
To see that which is pure
peeling back the layers
till there is no more lies
no more deceit, fable or myth
no more rosy glasses
no more happy ever afters
no more dogmatic rituals
I dare you to cross the line
into the true matrix of reality
not that which was programmed
so that you can finally see the light
The lies that we are told throughout life, and the ones that really get me, are the ones we are supposedly told, "for our own good". Keep giving us reason to pause and contemplate So'ja.
tyte poem.things that we were taught as a child were done for some reason.at some point, we will challenge those things. ignorance isnt bliss..what you dont know can hurt you.. keep ya head up
TRUTH does mean justice...however, justice isn't necessarily about TRUTH. this tangle web of deceit only creates more webs. STAY FOCUSED.
