The More I See…

The More I See
The More I See…the more I believe myself

The longer I live the more I trust myself,
the more I prove to me , my insights are justified;
it is not an issue of ego,
for that horse bolted long ago and broke a leg,
but an experience that self-doubt cannot placate
what first I see as truth.

I am no seer,
but in age I hold a vision profoundly understood,
as life cycles and people too,
as they pursue their dreams,
and who they are the telling of souls,
in every thought, word and deed.

We are all immersed in our sameness,
stereo-typical and repetitive, and for me,
people wear their souls on the outside,
their chosen clothing but a thin veil of no consequence,
and I read them in their denial,
grasp their truths that they themselves cannot.

I can say little,
as most people cannot or are not ready to hear the truth,
so denial is a common human failing,
a somewhat rational device of protection,
to uphold the fairytale expectations of self,
and the often psychotic beliefs of how life is through their eyes.

This deluded truth is often so engrained in thought,
there is no real way to prove the fact
or even suggest the possibility
that they are living in another world
unrelated to this one,
a denial so deep nothing could change it.

It is like trying to explain sight
to a blind person from birth.

    You may not be a seer, Tony, but the wisdom, compassion, love, and caring that is in your heart allows you to see the truths that many others are blind to. I love this verse. Well done.

    I enjoyed how you expressed this, with a found sense of confidence, wisdom. The ability to see and know intuitively, with out judgement, just an admitted awareness of others, lost in their delusions. Awesome, a nice place to be.

    I age afford wisdom, whether or not we see it is another thing, but experience accounts for a lot of our wise conclusions. Cheers Mel.
