    The Bliss of Blindness.
    Collective Binding of minds
    Clinging to belief

    Sing, pray, pay, work, hope….
    Waiting on a mystery…
    “Save us… me from harm!”

    Belief is soothing.
    Nothing was ever my fault
    Blame the Boogeyman.

    I miss the freedom
    “In his Name...” shielded… deceived
    Slain in the spirit

    Those days are gone now
    Truth found a target. My dome
    Resisting arrest

    Can’t and won’t go back
    Awkward, painfulness of truth….
    It’s impossible.

    These eyes open wide
    Knowledging and drawing up
    The Science of Life

    Every now and then
    I long for a haunting song
    That quickens my soul…

    But Truth is rooted
    In Love, Peace and Happiness
    Mathematics grants.



    Peace
