Shock Factor

What may be

surprising to seekers of truth

is the shock factor that we

seekers of truth face

knowing we were raised

nurtured and fed on a tradition

in absence of a piercing

love of the beloved’s family

in the name of politically correct

values and ideals

in the name of balance

and following

the majority

it hurts this heart

knowing daily that the tradition assumed

as the middle way is insufficient to

nurture this insatiable thirst for truth

and cannot be quenched by balance

rather by a necessary bias

in love for the family

the shock factor resumes each day

as the seeker of truth uncovers

layers of debris where loving the Itra

was never the highest priority

while every story and narration was

in absence of the equation of the family
