You can rush toward perfection
and dream your way
back to the lights of reality.
You can pretend the nightmares
don't exist outside
your walls of glass and stone.

You can speed toward redemption
wielding your crosses and faith
lifting fervent prayer to deaf ears.
You can revile the different
pity the mad, love the little children
give away pennies on street corners.

You can wile your life away in idleness
not caring to see the sun shine
or the moon hold court amongst the stars.
You can gaze down from your ivory tower
upon the follies of your peers
believing yourself superior in every way.

How many nights you lie awake
tormented by truth's whispers
tortured by your own hypocracy
pasting on a smiley face
to greet your enemies and your friends
watching time spin by on decaying
corpses, dancing with your fear
of yourself.
That's the difference between me and the rest of the world! Happiness isn't good enough for me! I demand euphoria! - Calvin and Hobbs

A good write no doubt, even though rather disquieting in its implications, dear Luck. Hypocrisy can be detected, because, as you say, it can't even be hidden to the one affected by it. To live in truth and to be coeherent with what we believe in is a goal we should indeed all pursue.

A thought provoking piece.

Luck,
what a great write!
More than all else by the time I got done with it I was thankful that I mostly sleep very well :D:
You just keep getting better and better - a pleasure to read at all times.

A wonderful description of the ego blocking the conscious mind and becoming a fragment in the illusion we call life.
Great post Luck.

To live honestly... to shed fear and fill with integrity and all the cost it gathers... is truly living life in the image intended.
Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart...William Wordsworth

Follow your honest convictions, and stay strong. - William Thackeray

The bottom line, especially for my character,
is the issue of unconditional love.”
