Enlightened

Quiet allows me to see..
all around me, everything..
gluttony, kindness, hypocrisy..
all at once, knowing.

In silence one is with Spirit.
In silence one can learn.
Why then all the world noise?
Can't you see your bridges burn?

They babble and babble and babble on
while i quietly observe.
They hustle, plot, help or scam..
I see clearly what they serve.

Disgusted with some, Delighted with others.
Everything around is Not as it first appears.

    Thank You. I have written volumes since I was 14, so for 25 years now. Usually I only share or publish the ones I feel will benefit mankind. Also, i don't write as often as I used to, only when I feel greatly moved. you're very sweet
