And so, the details
of the absolute,
the unthinkable catastrophes
at the root,

are written off
in a margin somewhere
with the hopes that no one
will have time to care

enough to take
a second look
and identify
the twisted crooks

who strategically
stole the truth
from an occupied
phone booth…

As a lone voice
on the line,
strained from the weight
of broken time,

searched thru words
to find metaphors
to help us heave open
the heavy doors

of the churches
built up on hypocrisy,
and the history books
filled with inaccuracy…

that we may one day
pry open our eyes
and free the mouth of truth
from the cupped hand of lies.

Humankind did not rise
by being civilized.
Technology cannot adequately
muffle the cries

of a species pushed forward
by greed and extortion…
a people molded by
fear, war, and distortion.

Then of course the timeline
is written and given
with no mention of certain
places, races, or women.

A past full of holes and
souls that were stolen…
A present full of commercialized
and falsified optimism.

And a select few who feel the
weight of a fate being untold,
aware of an apocalypse
waiting to unfold

that will collapse the corrupt factions
hiding behind the American dream…
that will reveal what the politicians
struggle to keep unseen…

that will awaken an inner knowledge
of shared spirituality,
and eliminate the misconception
keeping us from being free.

And finally the cryptic visions
will all make perfect sense;
the phone booth was physicality
and the voice...higher consciousness...

I applaud you for attacking the root of the problem, especially the one concerning religion; for I don't believe that it's religion itself-religion should be rather synoymous to the way one lead's their life-but instead the people and organizations who use it as a business or gimmick. I loathe that. Your words are intelligent and true!

Thank you for the wonderful feedback! And yes, with regard to religion, I have always felt it stems out of something beautiful and has only been corrupted by those who create the "organized" versions full of fear and control features to oppress the larger population. I went to your page and plan on returning for more reading. I loved the one "You are breathing" and look forward to looking at some more. Thanks again!

I thought of a really odd man in a phone booth calling random people there to recite this poem, and then when someone tries to find the man, he simply and mysteriously disappears.

S/He's like V and some propagandist wrapped in mystique. I'll start imagining you as that, if you don't mind.
