Image for the poem Deception

Deception

words when viewed by eyes
gathered and coupled
together with the mind
can create images
and
perceptions,
-
all of which are
one of a kind
with each of us seeing
in a different way

optic and retinal nerves
which do the viewing,
capture what's
plainly there
but not always
what's seen,
are the only truths
present there

one can be taught
though,
how to see all,
by looking
t h r o u g h
the so called
obvious
surface,
to discover
what's really behind
all of those
stones
and warped
blurred lines

at times the mind
doesn't want to see
head turns
looking the other way
it's just too
complicated
released
expletives said
out of fear
or when
thoroughly
frustrated

if either one is unwavering
in their convictions,
two different outcomes
will be presented
-
one will
either see,
or
they won't
-
if one can stay committed,
opening their mind
to understand
there can be
u n e x p e c t e d
and u n`k n o w n,
it is

- there -

where the
"truths"
lie
revealing there's
nothing
hidden at all...
it's there
camouflaged
just below
the jaded surface
of your
mind's
eye

 

Author's Note: I forgot how cool these were
...give it a try!
