All The Light That Does Not Help Us See

Updated: Apr 29


The Seeing - a poem by Jeff Hulett


We are drawn from our darkened slumber by the light.

Light brings the world to our eyes.

We are compelled to reveal untold darkness by shining our light.

 

But our light is not always true and darkness may resist. 


Sometimes our light alters that what is seen in the dark.

That light does not help us see.

 

Sometimes those with the light hide that what is seen in the dark.

That light does not help us see. 

 

It is the dark holding untamed knowledge, eluding the light.

That light does not help us see. 


It is the wise coaxing to the known, separating from light's misgiving.

That light does not help us see.


Those not seduced by the fickle light see deepest into the dark.

That darkness reveals the truth cloaked by the light.
