Free fall

what is this
…always falling.
falsity and frivolity stream upwards,
lost like facebook hearts and angry faces.
…all that remains is the bitter kernel of truth,
like a poisoned stone in a festered stomach.
“Oh, this is learning.”, I say.
“Yes, you are learning”, says a voice.

  1. Some lessons can be hard and bitter, but once learned are subsumed by sweetness. Great poem!
