Hidden in Plain Sight Truth

Hidden in Plain Sight Truth
Hidden in Plain Sight Truth

The more I squirm, the more I realize
how pointless it is, and the more I accept
the inequities of life, the more I come undone,
as harmony doesn’t just arrive with the mail,
but is balanced in often harsh resorts,
and who am I to respond in sorts,
to the havoc in which my world exists.

Not perfect, by a long shot,
not knowing beyond my purpose,
but sad this world of counterbalanced fate,
that just displays that pendulum swing,
the reality in which I squirm,
yet I see it plain in nature’s yielding,
its perfect laws and revealing truths so stark.

Who abides this hidden in plain sight truth,
when life is far from astute,
rather bent by human will and selfishness,
that to me is a profound affront,
as I cannot change these misconceptions,
the direction that humanity chooses,
and in that disaster waits.

So pointless what I feel,
the suffering I administer to a heart
that wants truth and harmony to avail,
yet I cannot abstain, cannot avert my eyes to what I see,
and the catastrophe that has already begun,
as life just goes on and on without change,
I await the time to run out.

Warnings meet with ambivalence,
too much to lose for most,
and so I watch the wave of desensitization
make reality dull and boring,
and people just focus on their lots,
without one thought of possibility,
one iota of the recompense to be paid.

I detest my sensibilities, the beauty I once adored
now the negativity from a world lost,
too invested in greed and more
that just denies the truth,
the imbalance just a phase in passing,
as new roads of self-interest open
to prove the wanting touch of this human kind.

I wish I could turn it off, not see what I see,
but alas I cannot, and so in witness I believe
the truth be told, and if perchance others can see,
then maybe in some other life
we can avert the strife already created
and reverse this dark hold on reality,
this malaise of our unbalanced planet.

    I understand how you feel, Tony, about ‘seeing’. I am not as learned or skillful as you are as a seer, yet I do see some things regarding the world situation and what is to come, and it greatly saddens me. I learned years ago to not ignore what I see, but to take what action I can if allowed. Right now I am at a loss as to what to do besides writing to send a message for people to be more aware – that is one way I can light a lantern and pass the flame on to others. For many people it is just easier to focus on their own personal life and not worry about the rest of the world. But, to those who care for nature, humanity, Mother Earth, all living things, as you and I do, we do the best we can spiritually and verbally make a difference for the greater good of all. Your words will make a positive difference for some (hopefully many) and for others who read you in the future will wish they had listened to your words of wisdom. We must never give up on lighting those lanterns. Thank you for writing pieces like this. Take care, dear friend.

    Check stanza 5, line 2: two s/b too.
