Told To Tell (Sold To Sell)

Everyday given to live,
Is a day left to leave...
As an experience lived to accept,
A discovery adventured...
That enlightens and connects,
To a truth to witness one reflects.

And everyday one lives,
To accept a truth to be observed as is...
With a consciousness enlightened,
Should make one's living of life to do...
Less dishonest.
And living with this honesty to expect.

Yet...
Everyday left to live for many,
Is done to reminisce missed opportunities...
Wished to have lived,
Without doubts tossed and kicked about.
Or a seeking as some do to frequently visit,
A life lived on lies to validate their denials.
Comfortably told to tell,
To have them sold to sell well and with pride...
Everyday with them to live from others hidden.

Everyday given to live,
Is a day left to leave...
As an experience lived to accept,
A discovery adventured...
That enlightens and connects,
To a truth to witness one reflects.
But many fear truth as a threat to reject.
