Allegory of the Cave Sonnet

Living in the shadows

Blinded by the fear they share

Never to break out of containment

As to them this is what made sense

Their knowledge, so limited

they see what they are only let to see

the shadows of reality their reality.

But when one is liberated from his chains.

He alone decides to strive,

To escape his false reality,

He found himself alive,

With new knowledge and vitality.

Leaving the cave wasn't survival of the fittest

rather, its was challenging our reallity to be its greatest
