Swim in a Lake of Truths – Written Thursday 21st February 2021 (Aged 32)

Swim in a Lake of Truths

in the very least –
you woke me up
and woke me up to myself
reminded me,
that there was no need to be somebody else
no need –
to play with dreams on the highest of shelves
in the very least –
you put me back into the correct pot
showed me –
all those feelings i had seemingly forgot
reawakened hopes
that i thought i had lost
in the very least you opened my eyes
showed me –
the beauty and depth of feelings inside
no need –
for those who we cannot abide
we must always swim in a lake of truths
rather than conceal ourselves in a pod of lies
