Wake Up.


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.
