Poem - Shock of Verity

The poem “Shock of Verity” is about struggle and inevitably of strongly held identities. The assumption of passing is held as a talisman that eventually loses out to the surety of the self.

Shock of Verity

Revelation waits in the heart
perhaps once slumbering in the past
now perception has arrived
to ask too much from the now

stepping from the normative
boundaries meant to protect
come with too high a price
for the ones who compromise

identity of the true self
becomes indulgence of the mind
in the battle for safe domain
when passing was once safe

the world would like for the same
continuance of what came before
it could care less for the change
now required for sanity

passing becomes the option shorn
seen as the perfect lie
all said to true if a soul
allows the truth to be ignored

still revelation will have its day
the world be damned in aftermath
when the reality is revealed
to the shock of verity.
