Discernment's Toll


Legion
 Share

Recommended Posts

I once was a child who was free

of calluses and cognitive defense.

Surely I once saw the world as it is.

But now I have parsed and armored.

Now I have healed from wounds.

And my innocence has been tainted

as thought of wrath has been born.

I wish I could cleanse my perception

and once again see the world as it is.

I wish I could pierce my self illusion

and know the world again as whole.

... I read the title as "discernment's troll".

:grin: That's easily done. I first named it "The Price of Discernment", but it wasn't quite right.

I'm glad you liked it Margee. Thanks. Yeah I wrote it. I tend to be my own worse critic. It feels close, but a little short of art. Need more practice.

Legion, were you in a fair bit of emotional pain when you wrote this - do you mind me asking? Was this you that you were writing about or just life in general?
