Fortress Beyond all Knowledge

Fortress Beyond all Knowledge

A Poem by R.J. Seoul

Once you take off your own mask: you are able to see through others.



Sometimes I go there,
To a place beyond the sky.
It is a roof untouched by others,
And there I hide.
I watch over all of the world,
And am intrigued by its mystery.
But my view is of the people,
Of all that circle below me.
There I can escape into others lives
Into visions of hope,
and their countless dreams.
And I see all of everyone
Whose minds lay trapped
in a fortress of beams.
It is wood confined by fear,
With wondrous truth beneath its mask.
Silent determination within their minds and the
Splintering curiosity within their soul
Slowly devours the putrid kindling.
Setting spark to a fractured edge.
When the wood is lit by fire,
when the timber slowly burns
and all life fades away.
The darkened ashes dust a white creation,
A figure worn innocent by countless days
its indescribable influence
Beautifully dances
Purely sways
To songs not sung by others.
And as I watch
It’s so effortless to become lost in hidden imagination,
In the intimacy of its movement
And the rhythm of its song.
From my tower above the world,
Peace peers through tiny cracks.
Freedom becomes fearless and shows itself
And tyranny falls dead to truth.
And as I sit on my roof above the sky,
as I sit in a place untouched by others,
as I hide
I watch
And I see all,
as few see any.
