The Heart behind the curtain

Pay no attention
to that man behind the curtain:
Don't delude yourself --
your choices were your own,
not that you were made that way,
not that those choices
have anything to teach you...

How many years
and how many tormented souls
before we get it,
get that this distant angry face,
these fires,
are just a construction,
an illusion built to terrify and control,

and behind it all is just a heart
that longs to make us whole
and help us find our home.
