the fact of the uncrossable

look
when i was young
my belief shone

a firing light
that drove straight break
the crystal of fact
i didn’t see

marching
to the purity
the island
i believed

it was only those
in different places
who caught the warped shadows
saw the facts
and said

as i said those
they did not see

but some
that’s all
the occasional sum

so if i ignore
the people
who point out
the facts
that lie
at my feet
i lose

so if i distain
the people
who point out
the facts
that lie
at my feet
i lose

so if i kill
the people
who point out
the facts
that lie
at my feet
i lose

now imagine
that young me
could deny
those others to opine
to say those facts
i could not see

so many would
so many would
all that challenge
to the ego

the fact
of the uncrossable
between reality
and belief

for her family to bound
going out to the hot light
we are all european now
the fact of the uncrossable
stuck to the ticker
