Life is good! Life is inspirational!

Enlightenment

The age of pure enlightenment
They tell us is now here
“Oh Really?” I do thus reply
“You mean all things are clear?”
For to the casual onlooker
You wonder what they mean
Enlightenment – are they quite sure?
Insights that can be seen?
“Oh get away” I cry out loud
“For all we’ll ever see
Is what we chose to thus observe
Personal acuity”

For call it what you really will
Enlightenment – insight
Or informed education more
Some things are masked from sight
Without a view from way up high
Let’s say – al-ti-tude view
For that’s about perspectives and
The me accepting you
And can be quite a complex thing
For us to honour still
For subjectively can mask
Our pure objective will!

So in this age of insights bright
Enlightenment and more
Let us consider that we must
Light candles on the shore
So that the tide of empathy
Will lap and comprehend
That blame and judgement rarely are
Considered as a friend
And make a wish on next New Year
To climb so very high
Enlighten what this really means
As watchmen in the sky
