The Flash of Real – Helen Grond


The Flash of Real

We are so much more 

than the words we speak.

Without uttering a sound,

a universe of information 

emanates from us.

We have ears to hear

and eyes to see.

We also have a subconscious 

that gathers every detail

without prejudice.

When we are confronted with fake,

we must rely on our inner mind to 

sift through the details,

our conscious mind can’t see.

The true intent becomes clear,

as we get to peer behind the mask.

The flash of real is blinding.

We cannot unsee what we just saw.

We cannot unhear what we just heard.

We cannot unfeel what we just felt.
