As the Script Unfolds

By Scott Thomas Outlar

As the Script Unfolds

One hundred days into a juicing habit
with the intention of detoxifying
chemicals from the food, air, and water
out of my system
while purifying the blood
and alkalizing at a cellular level

but it hasn't been my body alone
that I've sought to cleanse
while going through this process

My main motivation, rather, to a more subtle degree
has been to bring about a state of mindfulness
to combat the poison of hysteria
sweeping across a culture
that's become consumed by propaganda and fear
from the trauma-based mind control
unleashed on the globe as a plague

To steady my heart and soul
with present moment awareness
and steel my spine
for what is still to come

because anyone who's been paying attention
to the New World Order agenda
knows we're still in the early phases
of what has been planned for decades

Apples, pears, lemons, ginger,
cucumbers, celery, beets, carrots,
cilantro, and parsley
may not be a one-stop shop
in halting the onslaught
of tyranny that's on the rise

but at least it can help cultivate a healthy environment
that puts me in a better position
to live in alignment with courage and love
so peace can be reflected from within
as this war plays out in the streets

Scott, this poem truly captures the tension and mounting angst of living in a world where often all we can do is try to take care of ourselves. The contrast of trying to reflect inner peace in the face of war illustrates the absurd condition of humanity at this point in time. Well, maybe at any point in time. Thanks!
