The following is a word doodle that happened my my head while feeding my baby lunch. My first stab at “Anti-devotional” poetry. Thoughts welcome:
Wake up and dispell the darkness
Arise and dismiss the dreams
Throw off the obstructing haze
Truth isn’t as scary as it seems.
Look out upon the brilliant day
see the wonder beyond illusion
I know you think the dream protects
but the dream becomes delusion.
Break your chains and stand up tall
reach for truth and understanding.
There are no answers in the dream
just smoke and ghosts commanding.
You only get this one brief life
and it’s loaded down with glories
You don’t have to live on your knees
or be a slave to stories.
There’ so much to life you’re missing.
There’s much more than you see.
Life is so much greater
than your dream will let it be.
I hope you wake to wonder
and see the truth like shining dawn
I know that in it’s cleansing light
you can find all your phantoms gone.
