Every human, every creature,
Every living thing we see …
Paints a most intriguing picture,
Through the mind’s sheer artistry.
Have you looked beyond the canvas,
Past the brush strokes layered there?
Have you seen beyond the image?
Could it be … you’re unaware?
Have you gazed beyond the surface,
‘Tward the depths of sweet explore?
Have you wondered at the vision …
Knew that there was something more?
Has your feathered brush drawn something,
You have yet to understand?
If you took a moment longer,
Could you let your mind expand?
Let no labels blind your vision,
Open up your eyes anew ….
Peer beyond the artist’s palette,
Far outside the common view.
Open up your mind to beauty,
You have never seen before,
Look beyond the misconceptions …
Deep into the inner core.
Hidden there beneath the shadows,
In the guise of simple form,
Rests a realm of pure ambrosia,
If you let your sight conform.
Fear not that your eyes deceive you,
Welcome their diversity …
There’s a world beyond the canvas,
“If” you truly wish to see.
