They See What They Want


A Poem.

They are everywhere and everything 
All-seeing and all-knowing

The tainted truth
Alarming realities picked out from muddled memories

They look
But they don’t see you 
They hear 
But they don’t listen

Though you are there, standing right in front of them they still cannot find you.

They are nowhere and nothing 
Makebelieve, a figment of their own consequential lies
Confident in their ignorance, vapid, an interpretation, blind to the truth
And when they speak, their words are empty, hollow
Ill positioned, badly timed

They miss
And this is not all they miss
For they miss it all.
