Unclothed and Irrepressible

By Tony DeLorger © 2014


The wandering of my mind through all translucent states,

brings me to truth in a stark and fine edged providence,

rendering all aspects of shadow intangible,

and all matter within light inexplicable.


When eyes decide to remain open, and vision is unimpaired,

the mind in a frenzy of adjustment, sees in a luminous clarity,

driving all emotional contentions far from cognizance,

and accepting, regardless of nature, what presents itself.


Once this step is taken, there is no turning back, no reticence,

no pretence or ignoring reality in any way,

just what is real and unclothed to an open and non-judgemental mind,

having then to face truth as it is, rather than any altered representation.


In my darkest recesses, I could never have imagined sight,

to be so explicitly vibrant and in surrendering, unencumbered,

and even the shock of it, falls short of reticence,

because the pure freedom of it, is a resurrection of what we understand.


We are, in our inadequacies, too a feared to accept crisp hard-covered versions of truth,

rather, the soft-bedded illusions of half truths in acceptable clothing,

assured to not task a mind to limits and ease us toward acceptance,

eventually to discover transparency and how life is.


I understand how difficult this transition is, this step of no return,

yet, when all is done, we grow so much from acknowledging weakness,

and in finding that strength we all possess, deliver ourselves,

from the tedium of delusional thought.


Sight is one of the most difficult senses to master, and understand.

Thank you Phyllis, so glad it touched you. It's always rewarding for readers to understand, or even to take something away. It makes the creation even more worth while. Have a great day!

Tony, this poem is deep yet very understandable, for me anyway. When we face ourselves and the truths within we do indeed take a step beyond the delusional to the Universal truths. These are powerful words you bring together here. Up and beyond in votes. As always, well done, Tony. Well done.
