Be the Witness

be the witness
he who watches
the one trapped
on the treadmill of life

be the witness
the only one who truly sees
without creating anything
or being anybody

be the witness
he who is disinterested
in life’s comings and goings
but sees them all

be the witness
the one who sees without eyes
hears without ears
and knows without thinking

  1. Speaking of your favorite singer, when’s the album coming out of your lyrics and her music and voice?
    I’d like to witness that…

  2. Yep –and isn’t it sorta paradoxical in some kinda way that we’re the witness whether we cop to it or not?
    So why not?
