Apply to what You Will

it is dark in the background and fore.
it is there. not waiting, Watching. You.
the things You Are and Do.

it Sees and Smells and Tastes.
can you feel it? even in darkness, we can feel
with our Hearts and Minds; with our Hands if we kneel.

But this is you, not we. it’s for You to see.
Because when Shown we are Blind
and when Told, Unkind.

and when Told, Unkind.
because when Shown, we are Blind.
but this is You, not we. it’s for You to see.

with our Hearts and Minds; with our Hands if we kneel,
can you feel it? Even in darkness, we can feel.
It Sees and Smells and Tastes

the things You Are and Do.
it is there, not waiting, Watching. You.
it is dark in the background and fore.
