Week 11: I Hope You Didn't Waste Your Time

from by John Brownell




I never thought I’d have to be the one to say to you
Every single thing you’ve come to know is wrong.
It’s startling.
As the sticky cloudy mess of your old memories displace
You’ll find
You’re exactly where you’ve always been in this particular space
And time

It always starts out unfamiliar
But true awareness is a real pain killer
And soon enough you’ll recognize this voice is mine

I never thought I’d have to be the one to tell you
Every little thing you’ve come to know as something
was nothing.
And the itchy sneaking sense you recognize as familiarity
It over exposes your nerves they grow like roses it’s true
This is the real you

The mysterious dream foundation of
The collective consciousness is love
In the library of your mind
I hope you didn’t waste your time
