Behind the VeilThursday 10 th May 2018
Wake me up.
For I am still asleep.
Navigating the day in a haze,
unable to see past the dream curtain’s shade.
Reaching out to the world unseen,
pained by the guilts and the sorrows
of my selfish undertaking
knowing it takes will and devotion
to truly Feel.
For I have Seen.
And every time I approach peace
I destroy it
and every time it is harder to reach
Why is illusion so great a temptation?
What is it about our lives that
leads us so easily astray?
hoping but merely to be happy.
Free me of this weight I carry
let tomorrow be another day
for, as the sun rises,
my eyes will open to the world
behind the veil.
