Wide Open


Wide Open

Falling upwards,
Standing down,
Silently screaming,
I make no sound,


Masks of truth,
Faces of lies,
Years of deception,
Slowly dies…..


Now i can see!
No illusion of light,
My vision so clear,
I gaze in delight,


What once was hidden,
Is now revealed,
Those blackened windows,
No longer sealed,


Thrown wide again,
To let in the breeze,
And blow my troubles,
To the seven seas,

The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
