I’ve no indication of where I now stand,
There are no signs, maps, or warm guiding hands,
No lights or voices, to steer my direction,
I wait in the dark, with my mind for protection.
If I stay put, I’ll be this way forever,
I’m scared, but prolonged loneliness is no better,
I’d see more here if I plucked out both my eyes,
No more shall I walk on a path full of lies.
It’s a scary feeling being led astray, as we realise that we were the co-pilot all along, but we didn’t see it coming until it was too late! To base your thoughts, emotions, actions and expectations upon the words of (and your perception of) others is a dangerous approach!
There are people in this world, who actively and knowingly build their life upon fallacies, they do not operate on the same frequency as those of us who value truth and integrity, instead they put their stock in what they can make others perceive, and what they can control or own by doing so.
Outrageously lucrative careers; flashy possessions; glossy relationships lacking substance; people’s souls; unreciprocated affection; ego boosts; image enhancements; power-play; and other things of this sort are what they covet most… but lacking the understanding of true value, they’re never satisfied.
Then there are those of us who are dazzled and misled by their deception, having given so much of ourselves in the hope that they can make good on their empty promises, which they never do. We are eventually abandoned, as their circus act moves on to another mark in another City… but where does that leave us?
Seek truth, be honest with (and respect) yourself, find your own genuine purpose, and create your own legitimate happiness, my friends!
Love and Respect always,
