TALKING TO OURSELVES
(3/30/16)


perhaps
at birth
we have an opportunity
to experience reality
as it
really is

but
from that
moment on

the world becomes
an amalgamation
of our self perceived
notions

we create

we sustain
our environments

independent
of those
around us

so when
we see signs

wonders

that seem
to be directed
only
at us

why
are we surprised?

we are simply
reminding ourselves
of what
we already know

we are
our only
ghosts

our only
angels

the universe
is our mirror

and when
we die

no one
will see
those stars
again
