Is the search over

I’m a man of many theories based on life and death alone, With my human head buried intrinsically in the ground, A limited lack of imagination stymied by reason I’ve found. If I’m to find real answers must think outside the box, Not be influenced by gravity or limited by speed of light, Have to negotiate laterally ignore what’s in plain sight. Completely revisit history, by traveling sideways in time, Lose the shackles of sanity rid the straitjacket that’s life, Take god by the hand walk on water, ask him what is choice. Deduction simply not working Going forward leads to death, Eyes are merely for vision blind spots behind my head, Is this a nervous breakdown No! but skin is being shed. Free will comes in many forms mine’s embedded in truth, Which in turn’s surrounded by doubt, caught in a web of lies, Each time I peel back a lair another one seems to arise, My task appears impossible and that’s probably true for you, But this is my world remember in here I can bend the rules, No need for toxic parameters also free from fossilized fuel. I’m talking about spirituality not religion or naked science, Bringing the poles together incompatible basic ideals, Find harmony in translation communion that actually heals. I sit alone atop my mountain leave torment down below, Take deep breaths of fresh air purge anguish from my soul, Fall into a trance of reclusion Quasi seance of self-control. I’ve transcended into nirvana shrouded inside cirrus clouds, A veil of silence surrounds me Karma’s a relic of the past, Not a life or death situation at one with the cosmos at last, Gone is delusion Gone is the lie Gone is persuasion Gone is the urge to die I want for zilch and live for all in a heaven without any gods, No need for tears or laughter blinded by bliss so bright, That’s it yes, I’ve found myself within the infinite cycle of life.

Funny you can't get anything past a child But you can get anything past an adult Supposedly we get smarter with age

I feel exactly the same David I think you have to become a member of the magic circle if you wish to get the trick. The hand is faster than the eye and so to the lie smarter than the average brain . The truth is firmly hidden in the background scenery and fine print And membership of the old boy's club is firmly closed shut to the likes of us

You be surprised how many seemingly insignificant things are going on under your eyes Christopher, but sometimes we miss the small print, It’s only on deep reflection or it’s pointed out by a child perhaps that we see an alternative subliminal interpretation to life, reading some of your poetry I can find meaning that you don’t see yourself it’s in the eye of the beholder cheers David

So wise and true David Life is made up of moments just such a shame they are fleeting Found it only for it to be snatched away So much so it now on reflection just seems like a distant memory taunting me Nothing left to see here Only thing left to do is move on To infinity and beyond

Thanks Christopher the days of been forced fed are in the past, don’t get me wrong I listen and take other opinions on board but just try find my own way in the search for the truth, you found it for a moment in that desert in South Africa so you know it’s out there as do I cheers David
