Epiphanies

From “A Fine Line “

Life hasn’t been so kind
Loop after loop

Hurdle on top of hurdle

Fake news

Imaginary dichotomies

———–

Things make no sense until they do

Reality seems unreachable

We walk the mortal coil

In the lap of feigned luxury

On porn sites

In executive board meetings

In big cars

At sports events

We walk

We trudge

We recoil

We lose our smile

Eventually

Till our next affair

———-

Happiness comes not in a pill

It’s gained by chance

By coming in touch with our solitude

And accepting the existence of now

The peace that has been lonely since we

were kids

We wash our soul’s tears away

Yet we’ve been hurt too many times

———–

Co-existence is the fruit of experience

It is beyond cherry orchards

Or strawberry fields

It is the undefined “it”

That perfect moment

In synchronicity

When all is in the right place

The skies

The spirits

They’re all balanced

And you start enjoying reality
