Prompt 108: Aura

Shaddrha of The Self-Love Project offers this week's prompt, aura. Thanks for this and for your poem, Shaddrha. Pelease visit her blog for the back story to this piece.

I still believe
In spite of the illusions around
In spite of the lies spread
I still believe
Most of it is fake
Just to mock and fool
Project your fears
But I still believe
There is some aura for real
I still believe
Me, the lowest of low
Me, who can be joked at, laughed at and fooled
Me, who is not sure if i am free
I still believe

  9. Love this Sahddrha!

    Me, who is not sure if i am free

    Even in the face of our own doubts
    as well as that of everyone else selling theirs
    if we can feel even just the edge
    of the emanation of underlying truth
    somehow, we can't let go of it entirely...
    and perhaps by acting on it, loving it and living it
    While we can can be joked at, laughed at and fooled
    Sets us free.

    You set off good thinking in me today:)
    Thank you.
