Truth/…………………………….By Sami Khalil

It is not too late to change the self or things. Change requires truth.Truth requires change from us.

                          

 The Poem:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Truth can be:

Absolute or relative

Ancient or new

Decoyed or revealed

Ugly or beautiful

Offensive or defensive

Lost or mapped out

Naive or by rote (experienced)

Bringing discomfort or comforting, in the conference of trodden reality

and the limits of the “self.”

Truth is…

That today is the first day of everyone’s eternity,

To define its curves, to revisit the verbiages and lessons of life,

Where humans can find their own niches, in an order or out of an order, with a bit of sifting…

The way life was meant to be.

Truth is…

That today is the day of change, in the gathered remains of shells and beautiful wrecks of individualism,

where change requires different outcomes, otherwise it is insanity doing the same things expecting different results. And change does require tangibles, for things that do not touch us will not pain us or heal us, in the process of trials and tribulations, till the next verses and chapters of life.

Then, truth is…

Today is the day to spread your Phoenix…and rise.

Today is most definitely the day to make change and everything from yesterday is laid bare for all to see. No matter what yesterday brought the sun was always set to rise again so therefore a new beginning shines.

Wonderful Sami

"Today is the day to spread your Phoenix…and rise." Absolutely.......the time is now to accept what is and figure out what to do to change that if it needs changing. No one can stay stagnant. If there are problems in life, we must alter what we do and how we react to the stimuli provided to us on a daily basis. Both inspirational and philosophical, Sami. Excellent work with a beautiful graphic to accompany your words. Lydi**

All it takes is some self-awareness and the willingness to change. Alas … usually it is the way of the cross … enlightenment through suffering … and we do have a way of nailing ourselves on up there. This is a very profound write full of love.
