For What It Is
The first rule is to keep an untroubled spirit,
The second is to look things in the face and know them for what they are.
Emotions blur our eyes and cloud our judgments
We often project our own biases
And only see what we want to see
Keeping ourselves just distracted enough
So we never have to look ourself in the mirror or face up to reality.
But reality doesn’t care about how you feel
It just is.
And seeing things for what they are
As they are
Being able to see right through the bullshit
Is a super power in itself.
Because without that grasp on reality
You’re forever stuck in a deluded fantasy
And that might be ok, until one day it’s not.
Because reality doesn’t go away.
And just because you can’t or refuse to see it
It doesn’t mean it’s not there.
