Lift Of The Veil - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Quicker comes,
The lift of the veil.
A shift of conscious for some,
Who have prevailed in faith

Not on this Mothership that sits,
Are those on false shores...
Fixed in positions betwixted,
And left standing to absorb this view!

As this cosmic 'it' tilts and drifts,
With those aboard...
To ease up with an unseen crew.
This tremendous vessel soon disappears.
Dropping all jaws as darkness nears!

Popping the eyes,
Of those who are clearly not mocking shock!
This power God has dropped...
Stops definitions on the spot!
