    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.
    Bless!

    Here! Right here!
    Let’s draw a line
    and reach an understanding
    albeit hesitant
    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.

    my brutha...

    TRUTH does mean justice...however, justice isn't necessarily about TRUTH. this tangle web of deceit only creates more webs. STAY FOCUSED.
