Shown What I Now Know - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Where did you think that I would go,
After I was shown what I now know.
Back to forgetting those experiences had?
Back to feeling trapped within doubts,
To question the reality of presented facts?
There is something about experiencing life,
I simply could not turn my back on that!
I'm here to stay right where I am at!

Where did you think that I would go,
After I was shown what I now know?
Back to depending on your promises made?
Back to being disappointed...
And forgiving to tolerate present and past charades?
Where did you think that I would go,
After I was shown what I now know?
Crazed?

Oh no. I 'almost' took that road long ago...
When I believed honesty you would never deceive.
But what I have discovered about you and truth,
Is the finding of it you never met to be introduced.
And now that I know it as it is to be,
I realize who has more problems to solve...
And I'm here to stay right where I am,
To witness the death of your delusion AND full recovery.

That's how certain I am,
You too will experience to comprehend and understand...
Once peace of mind is found,
It doesn't matter if it shows or where one goes...
A clarity obtained to 'see' has an ability,
Not to deceive honesty for what it is!
That's how certain I am you too will experience that,
To comprehend and understand...
