Poem | Once upon a time
‘Once Upon A Time’
Once upon a time life had no meaning;
No God, nor faith, of any higher being.
As darkness revolved, high up in the clouds; withdrawing to silence away from the crowds.
There was no love only despise;
an illusion of beauty; a beast in disguise.
Isolation became peace a way of survival; turning inward to speak, running into denial.
Defenses were constructed like concrete walls; protecting the image underneath it all.
Then came the day, that life had meaning; there was a God and faith of a higher being.
Beauties illusion restored an aurora of light; as silence eluded and flew out of sight.
For now there’s love; a sweet reprise;
to beauties illusion, a blessing in disguise.
Honesty has surfaced, a brand new arrival; speaking out against ones own self-denial.
Mind and body connecting, reclaiming its style; unfolding a veil, of a hidden profile.
