A ponderous thought weighs down the moment
with a sense of foreboding,
and glancing back I see no past in pursuit,
yet what fear impedes my grip
on the ever-evolving now, interceding
with my sentient vows of impartiality.
This burden of dire consequence,
emanates like a beacon of distress,
a knowing lost in time and space
that niggles my inner places
to verbalise the intensifying doom
that pervades my every moment.
Tis not war or famine or political aspirations
that cause this fear so near to my thoughts,
it is truth itself, that will disarm the world,
the knowing of what actually ensues
that will rob us of our freedom, our dreams
and the delusions we have so far accepted as life.
To know that all we have understood as reality is a lie,
that we remain slaves to a secret world unknown,
our every move, thought and action
monitored, videoed and reported at the leisure
of our controllers, the manipulators,
who forge our lives for their benefit, is a shock.
Not conspiracy, reality,
we are all kept in the dark, entertained and placated,
to believe exactly what we are taught to believe,
to conform, to struggle, to dream
that which we are given to dream,
and we think in our ignorance, we are free.
If we decide to wake up,
what promise would the world have,
what within harsh reality will comfort us;
and so we choose the delusions of blissful compliance,
to live as best we can in an attempt to find an elusive happiness,
that awaits us on some esoteric level of existence.
What saves us is a possible spiritual harmony,
an acceptance of self and potential,
to aspire to that alone, for personal salvation,
the rest is an illusion, the truth of which could destroy us all,
if we are not prepared within,
at peace with who we are.
