Conformity

Conformity

A Poem by blueseeker

The value of truth

often misheard.

The body of time

fighting for purpose.

 

Yet, both coexists

never understood.

 

Perhaps, both remain

as hollow shadows in which

we are to conform.   

 

for an audience of one?

You give much to ponder, in these few stanzas. The image of truth and time as two ''hollow shadows'' that we must come to terms with and acquiesce with, opens up a door to the imagination.

The one we have as an audience: God? The devil? A loved one? the self? If only we knew.

Yes, people often all try to be the same by style and when someone is different they are often attack and the effort is put forth to force them to conform or be outcasted. Who is the audience we really conform for? Ourselves. Excellent poem.

Truth and time move on, shaping us to their forms.

Brilliant! As Time moves on and life changes, our values change.There seems to be a need to conform with the times, and for that, we need purpose. We strive and fight for it... yet, is it hollow?... for Time continues to change.
This in my perception of this piece. Thank you for this thought-provoking write.
