Eyes Open


Only with eyes open
Can the truth be seen
When seeing isn’t believing
The truth is in between

    Isn’t it interesting how truth has become completely subjective? Perhaps it always has been, but there seems to be a willfulness to keep one’s eyes closed. Awesome poem that captures such a powerful condition.

      Thanks, Diana. I think the more we look, the more we see, and that’s where the lines of truth become a little blurred. Is seeing what we want better than seeing everything? I’m not entirely sure…

        I think seeing the truth may be painful, but ultimately liberating. 🙂
