The Hurt of Humanity

We look in the mirror, the one we hold inside, in
that place where the darkness barely hides us, where
our eyes hurt from the light of our failures, our
weaknesses, our humanity…
We look in the mirror and see who
we are…sometimes…not often.

 

The hard bit is not the seeing part, that’s
simple easy smooth quick not
complicated…everyone sees
everyone’s eye’s process light, fire up
neurons, charge synapses…
see what they see.

 

Few, however, do so without fear, without
filters fantasies forgetting fog of conscious
and consequential reality…most
all maybe
most see what they want to see…even
if most (all maybe)
don’t even know what
they want.

 

It’s that singularity; the truth about lies, that
creates the angst, the tension, the pressure, the
inevitable motion toward a preventable future
toward an ending predictable repeatable believable and
wrong…not the one we need want desire…the
one we get.

 

Drop the filters fantasies forgetting fog of conscious
and consequential reality and
fire up neurons, charge synapses… see what you see
when seeing is what
you simply completely entirely totally …do.

See
yourself
through eyes
of wonder, of amazement, of
honesty and love…and
lose the hurt
of
humanity.
