Plato's Allegory Of The Cave Part 3 - Poem by Daya Nandan

The road to enlightenment, the shedding of one’s illusions, is never easy,
For the uneducated believe the enlightened are people so sleazy,
Especially when these illusions have been present since their childhood.
So they ignore reality and live in their illusion that they have always understood,

Staring reality in the face is definitely painful at first,
Watching your illusions you held tightly shatter and burst,
This is why many choose to retreat in their fear of change
For they are in their comfort zone and find the truth strange,

But we must not be in the allegory of the cave,
No, we must walk to truth and reality with courage so brave,
We must erase our ignorance, prejudices and inhibitions of mental kind,
Open our eyes to the knowledge of the universe so we are no longer blind,

Most people are comfortable in their ignorance, for they believe it is bliss,
But hostile to anyone who points it out, so they remain in their abyss,
Let us not take those illusions and shadowy images for truth
Let us not become examples that corrupt and destroy potential of the youth,

We must accelerate in fields of science and improve the knowledge within,
Seek improvement for society and educate people of ignorance's sin,
Constant improvement will make our society and world flourish and grow,
Into a brilliant new reality that will truly radiate and glow.
