Cognitive Disonance

Cognitive Dissonance

when that which is said
seems simultaneously
not to be understood
and a soft ring of truth..
The mind tasks itself
to discover the object
of meaning
but unease settles in
after some tiring probes..
What is history?
A question as this
and the mind cognizes 
timelines with dates
stories beginning and end
but hints of fragmentation
loom with suspicions
of larger stories which 
 the mind cannot find..
Unease or dissonance 
produces the longing
waiting for a recognition
of grace...
