chasm

phrases that are made to describe certain imagery
suddenly became incongruous
they were lacking on the inside
in the chasm wherein real things are caged within
suppressing pleas from people deeply suffering
faces showed nothing but stolid indifference

and before, i used to misunderstood and dislike what i see
what others keep on talking describing such beauty
in black and white and everything neutral
but with you showing such enthusiasm
and doing it in a cautious manner
scrutinizing every piece like an expensive diamond,
i seemed to have likened the picture

seeing almost everyone show a casual lack of concern
being numb showing nothing in return
i saw a blank painting hanging on a wall
and it hit me the moment i took notice
of what’s carved beneath
the space of infinite emptiness

it shows the fear of everybody else
looking so barren and unworthy, i looked around
and things suddenly came flashing in my mind
it was all an act of prevention to the things we fear the most
it was pure deception tricking everybody
even ourselves
to avoid pain and sufferings and to escape

we are told to let it all out_our emotions
even our alter ego to be understood
but can we really balance the weighing judgments
of those people around us?

we are born to criticize and to be criticized
to absorb everything even the dirtiest truths about life
we are born with this feeling words couldn’t decode
thoughts we surely couldn’t put into statements to be read
lessons we knew for so long we couldn’t live by
and feelings we couldn’t handle that control us sometimes

with those phrases that are meant to describe me
are they showing harmony?
or are they just another broken notes
in my soulless piano with my hands
tapping the keys hearing noise
instead of hearing the artistic
outcome of my psyche doing music?

i came to be understood using my vocals to be heard
keeping a straight face to show proud
and to raise myself still touching the ground
but I've gone so far taking strange
and odd things as the usual
I’ve been on highs and lows and i know
it will took me a lifetime to grasp
what i really am and what i am capable
of doing in different and peculiar contexts
that up until now, i still couldn’t imagine

Ecidna gorge in the Kimberley. Had to sit around for about an hour hut I knew that this would happen sooner or later. Then I just had yo hope for a hood looking subject to be passing through the gap at he right time
