~ PAROLE ~

I'm as free as a bird
                And simultaneously
                                         Locked in a cage,
       The sky oozing down
                                 Every night as DNA.....

As I begin to taste the rage
Existing,
In connecting theories
Creationism and Evolution
Occupying ,
A truly false space
Within the mind,
As
Silent Iron Gates
Keep us from looking beyond
The elusive
Spirit or Soul
Beyond autonomous control
Where
Lizzie Borden's the warden
With the bloody keys
To Parole
It's not that easy fighting
When the truth is so damn big
After all
I'm just a speck upon a speck
"In the middle of specklessness !"
While
It's a Black Hole I dig
It's a white Tory Wig
A courtroom of galactic lies
Revealing
A course-study in
Intelligent Design...

Tony Taylor

Hey T.....There is so much out there and so little we can explore, so there has to be theories and hypothesis based upon what we do know..which leaves so much room for errors!  It can feel like we are imprisoned in our own minds...unable to comprehend the gigantic perspective of creation...and yet, God give us just enough to want to seek and question...to wait for that real parole hearing where we can finally be free because the judge is God who has all the answers....lol...This brings up so many mysteries and yet respect for the fact that we cannot know what an intelligent being knows until we are on the same playing field.  Great perspective, introspective write,  I like that you always write to make others think.  Love n Hugs, xo C

Hi Tony,

As I write and read I realize more every day, that true understanding 
is above our pay grade. But these mysterious we contemplate surely gives
us much to write about. 😉 Nice write 👍🏼

Dear Tony...I am constantly trying express these very thoughts but never do so adequately...yet you manage to convey the mystery of it all with such skill and eloquence. I am in awe. I very much believe we are not alone in the Cosmo and others travel with us whether they be gods, spirits, aliens, angels...who knows...but there is definately a force. We feel it but we can never understand it because our brains simply are not big enough, do not have enough wattage to comprehend, that is probably how it should be but for some..maybe the veil stretches just enough to reveal a little more and then little more again ....cracking write 💕

Omg this poem drew me in...deep! I haven't been on here in a minute and this is why I come back. "As silent iron gates keep us from looking beyond the elusive spirit or soul." So true...we have to dig deeper...there is so much more out there that They don't want us to see, but we have to keep pushing through. I can so relate. Thank u, tHank u, thank U!!

I love how you describe this Tony and my favorite line is...
I'm just a speck upon a speck
"In the middle of specklessness !"
