Too Simple To See

Time is cruel
in that there are
not enough minutes
in a lifetime
to learn all
there is to know

the best of our
years are spent
sifting through
the bullshit, the fluff,
the liars, and the takers
until one great day
our hearts reveal
to us what it is
that truly matters

even if our eyes witness
the truth of only one sunset
there would be immeasurable worth
in all of the struggle and pain

there is such beauty in this world
if only it weren’t too simple to see.
