AWAKE

AWAKE

A Poem by Peter Truth
"

One of the pieces that was deleted, slightly reworked.

"

Now awake

to realize that

you've always

been asleep.

 

Bought all

that they sold

even at the

price of your

soul.

 

The truth is

a riddle wrapped

in a puzzle that

you can't solve.

 

Trapped in a box

that you would'nt

open if you could.

 

So you run away,

that's what you do

best.

 

But can't get away

from yourself now

that you're awake.

I think we all sit a ponder what we could have been, the worst thing you can do is run away from the truth. I try very hard to keep my head out of the sand...I dont know if it works though...This poem made me think alot, I really enjoyed it. thanks
