True… [POEM]

ever wondered
if your faith
was blundered
a sundered fictitious why
perpetrated
by disguise
a wise lie
told by
cunning linguist
hunting things
that don’t exist
for jest and gist
and yet
you’ve believed in
just as is
for a sake of it
or a stake in this…

the mirror shows reflection
a shadow shows a truth
the darkness shows us color
exposure shows us you

but once
if taken sure
is just enough
to make it pure
or ridiculous notion yet
the time it takes
to deviate
is worth
the wait
so take the cure
just as yet
make it sure
press the bet
to make it best
odds don’t make gambles
taking risks
will eventually profit
just endure
some cards you can’t help
just insure

the mirror shows reflection
a shadow shows a truth
the darkness shows us color
exposure shows us you

a life is not
what a life is got
they steal lives
to make lifeless pots
serve to the people
as if life was hot
and act as if
life would rot

but just imagine

if you carpe diem
instead of mea culpa
and took your bread
instead of always wanting
lived as you desired
and not as was deemed
but fought the systems
which gave you things
loved without limit
and moved without chain
enjoyed with much pleasure
and endured without pain

the mirror shows reflection
a shadow shows a truth
the darkness shows us color
exposure shows us you.
