The Veil, and the struggle within.

The greatest forces we fight in life are not from without, but simply within.
We are truly our own worst critic, and our own worst enemy.
We fail to see the beauty in life, because of the veil.
A veil of our own creation.
Yet, it’s thru this veil, that only shadows we see.
Shadows of long ago, of times gone past.
Shadows of our present state, as harsh as it may be.
Simply a veil.  A covering.
It covers our secrets.  It seems to protect.
Yet, truth be told, only leads to suffering, and, more suffering,  in the end.
Can this enemy be conquered?  Can the veil be removed?
Can we face the life as it is, and simply move on?
That answer if simply up to you, and me,  my friend.  HB

Hello, I'm Herschel. And, I'll be the first to say, that I am not a writer. Although, there was a day, long ago, that I considered writing as a career. Yet, life took me in a totally different direction. Today, I find myself just putting my thoughts down, simply with pen and paper. I'm a little old-fashioned maybe, in that sort of way. I simply find myself writing about whats real, and relevant to me, based off what life has given me. If what I write touches you, then my heart is truly at ease. For what it tells me, lets me know, that we are truly in this thing called "Life" together. And so, I thank each of you for taking the time to stop by, for liking my writings, and giving me the honor, that you would somehow follow me. And, so, I'm not a writer, a poet, or even perhaps a great blogger. All I can simply say, is that I write from a heart that's real, a place that somewhere along the way, I forgot existed.
