Clarity/ Ignorance is Bliss

Do you ever have those moments
Those moments of pure,
Unadultered,
Clarity?
In which,
You finally understand
Everything you thought you knew
Was wrong,
And everything you thought you were,
Was a lie?
Your mind
Has lied to you
For years,
Telling you
You’re popular
You’re loved
You’re cherished
You’re polite
You’re helpful.
But you’re not.
You are nothing.
You didn’t even realize
Your best friends cry
For help
To save them
From themselves.
Their cry
Fell on your own
Selfish
Un hearing
Ears.
They say ignorance is bliss,
And I’m inclined to believe,
Until I’m hit
With one moment
Of true clarity
And I realize
I can be that person,
The one I told myself I was,
But only if
I don’t lose myself
In the ignorance
Of bliss.
