ONE THING I KNOW
(1/4/19)


I am
alive

that is
all
that is
certain

the rest
of reality
is clouded
by society

relative
interpretations
about what
is real

what
is not

short
of electroshock
I have no way
of resetting
those patterns
so long ago
ingrained
in my brain

I see
what they
want me
to see

hear
what they
want me
to hear

every once
in awhile
I catch something
in the periphery

something
that seems
to be
outside
of civilization's
considerations

something
real

but something
not contained
within
human constructs

something
I cannot
explain

something
nonetheless
that keeps me
going

keeps me
living

just upon
the possibility
that I may
one day

behold
the beaming
being

of God
