wake up

July 5th, 2011 Comments Off

Let’s imagine, you and I,
what life might be like
if one day we awoke,
really woke up,
and looked.

The things we dreamed
were real were false;
those real things
we could not
see alone.

At first
the freedom
of sight might
be so blinding that
we believed we could
still be imprisoned instead.

But

slowly,

slowly now,

and even more

slowly we’d see that what is real does not have to be painful. ¬†What is good for the spirit is good for the body, and if our eyes can bear the blinding light our lips and belly will thank them.
