It was me

SDC12396

 In a world drowning in darkness
A few colored speckles came in sight
Lost in the venom their hearts harness
I saw pearls brilliant and bright

I looked little closer
Leaving the lens and trusting the eyes
To observe the poser
And finding the facts, leaving the lies

I figured my flash was off
Making the masquerade shown to thee
That darkness I despised to scoff
Existed because of nothing, but me.

    ‘That darkness I despised to scoff
    Existed because of nothing, but me.’- introspection…. we all need to do this to find out the real reason… 🙂 a brave and wonderful piece… (y)

      Thank you for understanding the thought so well. ^_^
      It’s true. We usually forget to observe our own actions as critically as we do for others. Human nature, perhaps?
      We forget that the world we all hate, constitutes of us.

      Thank you so much, as always! It is never easy. But then what is? 😉
      *Trying to do that.. in vain* Ok, this is much more difficult than everything else 😀 But still, we must keep trying. Probably we’ll improve at least one person in the world 🙂

      Thank you.. I needed this in an attempt to infuse some sanity in myself 😀
      Read this somewhere: The person driving faster than us is an idiot and slower than us is a moron.
      It can happen that even we are sure, we are wrong 🙂

    Looking into yourself and admitting that it really is you, whether good or bad, light or dark. So beautiful!

    Well, I shall just confine my thoughts after reading your piece only to this sentence. Why I say so is because, what i felt whilst reading this was something more than what i feel now, when I’m trying to just reduce them into words! 🙂

    wonderful wonderful lines…. We often forget to watch our own actions and are more busy in accessing other… very well put… 🙂 🙂 Thanks for sharing this 🙂 🙂
