OBSERVATIONS...

I knew to my core thought processes 


Unthinkable but thought 


A shock to the recesses of my mind


A bout of this world I once knew 


I never thought it would not grow old 


Its shiny, but icy cold 


I thought I knew fear 


I thought I knew hate 


I thought I knew disparity and truth


I never knew it was a homophone filled with illustrious ironies 


A brand of say 


A brand of way 


A brand of order 


A brand of decay


I Knew a brave world,


Knew a status quo,


Alas there is something different


invading our psyches at will 


Sitting upon the steps of our memories of a world we thought we once knew 


 


But not you. 


You're so different now 


You almost act as if you never knew how it was 


What ever the case, its normal now...

 

 

 

Draft:

 

I knew to my thought processes 

A shock to the recesses of my mind

Unthinkable but thought 

A bout of this world I once knew 

I never thought would not grow old 

Its shiny but icy cold 

I thought I knew fear 

I thought I knew hate 

I thought I knew disparity and truth

I never knew it was a homophone filled with illustrious ironies 

A brand of say 

A brand of way 

A brand of order 

A brand of decay

Knew a brave world 

Knew a status quo

Alas there is something different

invading our psyches at will 

Sitting upon the steps of our memories of a world we thought we knew 

 

But not you. 

You're so different now 

You almost act as if you never knew how it was 

What ever the case its normal now...

An intense and powerful call

An intense and powerful call to stay diligent and connected to our timeless, inner self in a time when so much disinformation "invades our psyches at will". Very wise and relevant. I appreciated seeing a draft to get a sense of the poem's evolution. Always fascinating to get a peek inside the artist's workshop. Peace and good health to you as well.
