Amnesic Paradise | A Poem by Scott Thomas Outlar

There is greatness
in everything
if you have
good inner vision.

Can you see it?
Can you digest it?
Can you sleep on it?
Will it inform your dreams?
Will you wake with more?
Will tomorrow be The Day?

There is greatness
in everything,
even the last sip of wine
for the night,
even the trip
to the graveyard
to visit your girlfriend’s grandmother’s plot,
even the rain
when you’re already wet,
even the drought
when you’re so very parched.

There is greatness
in everything,
even if you are blind and dumb
and stupid and mute.

There is greatness
in everything,
whether you are true
or false or fake
or real.

There is greatness
in everything
if you just forget
everything else.
