Between The Lines

Flowers And Lines

Everything that exists is one being. You are
A mirror that reflects light and I’m looking in
The mirror. What prevents me from seeing clearly
Are my own misperceptions. What I want to see
Is the light but there’s smoke in the way. It’s akin
To the darkness that happens with a dying star.

I can’t see the pure love. I’ve a distorted view
Of everything. Ever since I was a child I
Had made many agreements with those who raised me
And with governing structures of society.
Seldom did I ever think to ask myself why
Living up to most of them was so hard to do.

We have been told our entire lives that we need to
Respect elders and authority and we’re told
That we aren’t good enough to pursue certain things
And that thinking about doing them only brings
About failure. We succumb to these manifold
Destructive affirmations and bleak points of view.

Most agreements that I’ve made are old and worn out.
Some are not even truthful. I need to get rid
Of the ones that are no longer helpful to me.
Once the smoke begins clearing how nice it will be.
What’s been done that’s not working can now be undid.
Making new agreements is worth thinking about.
