A Torch In The Sky - Poem by Janet Willemien Mulligan
There is only one thing in life that is true.
And that is you.
We walk around all day
Thinking we know everyone in some sort of way.
But suddenly, just out of the blue,
I introduce a new course leading me astray
From the road you set in motion
It’s as easy to do
Say some wrong words and it works like a potion.
All my life I thought what was true was the stuff that I knew.
But now I can’t be sure of all that I see, nor hear, nor read.
This make me feel like I know the pain that bleeds
‘Cause I don’t know how to become un freed
From the chains of my perception
It is the eclipse blocking my sun
From the awareness disclosed to absolutely everyone.
It’s just too bad that I stay
Secure in my place beneath the ocean of stars.
Now my only identity has visible scars.
