A Poem by The They
"

what a joke...

"
Life,

Through the differentiation

Of its own self-engendering movement,

veils its own eyes

to the privilege of its self-experience.

What a joke when

a life full of contemplation

has only to show for its efforts

the understanding that occurs

when the mind is silenced by its own contradictions.

Understanding that

When I see you,

I see me.

I'm enthralled. Your pieces are epic. This short, yet powerful piece truly describe, in part, our state of being.

Life,
Through the differentiation
Of its own self-engendering movement,
veils its own eyes
to the privilege of its self-experience.

Brilliant and so, so true.

"when the mind is silenced by its own contradictions" Such great lines in here. The best part of the poem, and one I relate to the most is the end with the conclusion, "When I see you/ I see me," that's such a powerful line and a thought that raced through my mind for a long time! Beautiful

few lines... but in these few lines you have created such a multilayer piece... the tale of universal truth about life, how we deal with all the premonitions and then all the dreams restrained by mind's contradictions....

Talk about packing a punch! A superb example of making every word count.

Your poems often seem to be deeply introspective, calling up dualities and emerging self-awareness that is sometimes tragic. They remind me of philosophy as much as poetry.
