The Illusion

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      

fallen

crawling

needed

gnawing

reached for truth

and came back empty-handed

each creature to discover

on their own

what occurs in their inbetweens

it takes a nanosecond

to slip

to learn the lesson

is balance found or created?

made to conform to our will

what we are willing to do

this illusion comes out of the shadows

the dark

that challenges the light

the grey

that stands against defined right

the temptation

too strong to fight

we are called to see the consequence

when Space and Time come back into focus

not lose our true center

spiritual locus
