Being self aware isn’t easy

because it’s more comfortable today

 

people believe things that aren’t

true

they construct entire philosophies

so they can be justified in not looking at reality

on purpose

people envelope themselves to protect how

fragile

the hold on what the world is supposed to be

instead of what

is

it gives them the ability to feel righteous

justifies them in being filled with anger

helps them point fingers at who is doing wrong

we

all

are

but it’s nice to feel like it’s not ourselves

so that we don’t participate in changing

society

if we were only this…

if we could go back to that…

we can’t

time for us flows forwards

the only solution is not to be wrapped in hostility

to step forward into the situation and become

change

for those who cannot step forward

we become

change

for those who cannot fathom anything different

but until the veil of ignorance and hate

shatters

breaks with the transforming weight of truth

we are the ones that cannot fathom anything

different

protected from reality by our own misbelief

we become the epitome of

delusional
