Miraculous Illusions

Miraculous Illusions
Our way to manage life
Our self-enforced delusions
Insidious and rife

The mask we show the world is thin
Slender as crystal glass
It doesn’t take a heavy blow
To make its surface crack

Between the cracks, our truth shines through
Unsure and insecure
No matter how we shore them up
They only fracture more

Our best recourse in face of this
Is find our central truth
Present instead – this – to the world
It won’t engender proof

Miraculous Illusions
Appealing though they are
Can’t replace the peace truth brings
No matter who you are
