The Thing That Matters Most



The thing that matters most
is the thing that has been hidden from you.
Everything changed, slightly,
so that the obvious is lost,
the essential is unknown,
the truest thing, disguised in a lie.
Nothing makes sense without the missing piece,
but, having forgotten, we accept
that nothing making sense
is how things always were,
how they must always be.
It's so close—it's right there!
so near.  Almost nothing is changed,
but the change changes everything.
