What walls break, before delusion sets in,
will be the salvation of a thirsty mind,
one that voluntarily opens to truth, accepts vulnerability
as an extension of afferent experience,
and regardless of suffering and plight,
becomes true to the self, not from fear but choice.
Walls protect us, yet also keep us from life,
minimize our experiences between accepted and rejected,
and that bias may be the breaking of us,
the one epiphany short of deliverance,
when we accept our manufactured parameters of life,
rather than reality, with all its undulations.
Even our reflection may have walls,
as the mind in delusion of fault
seeks the soft Hollywood version of us,
out of protection, out of ego or vanity,
yet in reality there is peace
in accepting faults, a profound empowerment.
Fear is often the obstacle of reality,
the truth yielding possibilities unwanted,
yet hiding behind delusion is counterproductive,
and knowing the self, with all its foibles
a relief, a freedom of thought and being
that will transform how we see the world.
