FOR THOSE WITH AN EYE TO SEE AND AN EAR TO HEAR


To see with the eye not through the eyes
Is to see all the lies
That abound
And to hear the whispering on the wind
With not the ears that can be seen
But with the inner ear within
Is to know the truths
To be found
In a paradise
Upon earth’s ground

For as William Blake once did write:

            The life’s dim windows of the soul
            Distorts the heavens
            From pole to pole
            And leads you to believe a lie
            When you see with,
            Not through,
            The eye.

And the pen is mightier than the sword
For the sword just kills
While the pen creates
And the battle grounds
Of times gone by
Are not for man against man
As is believed
But man against himself
The battles of his soul
To come to his self-realisation
Of his own creation –
Self.
