Gloss

Turn on the lights…turn on the color.

Let’s see everything there is to discover.

Strip away illusion…strip away wishes.

See it for the war, the damage of militias.

See it for the fire, for the smoke & embers.

See the world as it is, not how one remembers.

Open up the truth for all to witness.

See our leaders for their unfitness.

Once you’ve cried you’re last tear of mourning.

Scream in protest & attack without warning.

Attack the precepts, the quo & institutions.

Demand change & growth demand restitutions.

Fight battles bitter & grim. Learn from loss.

Or be a collaborator…happy to live in the gloss.

I see the world through a Painter’s eyes and process it with a Poet's Heart....it's quite a harsh place for the soul. It scratches and wears your true self down, at times, but the Beauty is Addictive. I feel for everyone I encounter. Everyone I encounter is a teacher if I'll let them be. I Empathize with everyone I talk to & I Think about Everything-LEVi
