The Gordian Knot (Respune)

Gordian knot
yet perceived to be different
To untangle it from yours
so perceived by me.
They all say

The Gordian knot
laid upon flesh
it is possible
not some wooden pole

Upon our neck
has been placed
Yet none of them
have been able
to untie me

Such from that knot
has now been placed
it matters no more
to all whom
did so know.

you see
there is but one trick
where the fault now lays

For to do as was
done, so long ago
To severe the Knot
with pen not sword

For they look at me
have I no say when you wield
the pen
this sword?

Yet only see part of me
I feel the pain as all other's
they see what they think they should see
it is so

For some of you
have most
graciously been shown
they see
what they have been told to see
have seen through my pain
and by seeing
in the mirror.

They don’t see the whole picture.

The mirror your self
for your gazing,
for if they did into one's self like that
For those whom some would go

I would no longer
be a mystery at that
unto my body inflicted like that

They would be able
to untie my mystery am I would,
should you so would think

If they were but to classify me
as plain human being
with the very same flame
and not as that of a nut.

Yet to see the people
it is whom you would call
they would see
I am unique see nothing unique
at all

Just for in your pleasure
you see not the measure
please if
all prior knowledge
it is of thee
that I so pray

Not into oblivion
ever again
may I see
Such a forlorn place

Where no human being
held for ransom
to line ones own
With that not of linen

Of knots or people
your knowledge
and wisdom
can supply

Apply eyes
with which
you have to see

For if my mind
they need to look
at me as not tained
tis only with fear
at the power of some
with fresh eyes
whom so can

which even the
and an untainted
mind can see
Makes the fear
grow even more
so in me

You see
the answer is here
you seek
is but in the mirror
of which I speak
for all to see

I am willing to share
with you
All that I have
but they have to be willing
the hope that answer all do seek

may I help
To open there eyes
and mind
to others

don't lock
away again
what's left
of my

For even the best
miss some

Yet only then you can see
What is right in front of your

There is an in between
world crazy and not

You can see the answer
by that of deed and action.
Is the shadow in you
or could be the light.
but a better
human being is there

So many have missed
simply for the asking

For freely
will I give to all
but you would
ask the
right question
is all
