Cogito Ergo Sum

Cogito Ergo Sum

Epiphanic convolutions
devoid of solutions
grip my soul
with a scurrilous embrace
in a life-death struggle
of co-dependency

my tribulations
continue the march
forward / backward
cloaked in a dark veil
for i just can not let go
of that which i have been fed

whether it be Christian Sciences
or other compliances
or indoctrinated propaganda
matters not much these days
for the relevance to all
that i think i know
exceeds not this empirical containment

we have labeled such misnomers
with pretty little collections
of letters
as we attach semi-cosigned
significance and values
for a determined outcome
that can project
and chart the movement
of the people
and thus the Souls

Faith, Trust, Belief
are quantified
with intangibles
and an etheric fabric
called the unseen

my soul does in fact
recognize its self
in this wisping curtain
of abysmal nothingness
or it created
such a reflection
for we do vie
for valuation
at some point
don’t we

but in the nearby end
of things
our champion of spiritual indifference
remains but a few unresolved
age old questions
such as . . .
what if

and hearing not any
verifiable retorts
we resort
to impersonal validations
for “Self” begs for reflection
that errs not
through time

and through the dark, the light
the dawning, the night
we are left
with but one possible truth
which Descartes’
so aptly coined
and that simply is
“Cogito Ergo Sum” . .
i think therefore i am . . .
