Clouding of Consciousness

A neural mist descends
A heavy weight on mind
A plague of obstacles progress
Inhibiting in kind

A nebula that masks all thoughts
Miasmic effluent
That overwhelms and suffocates
Without release; relent

A haze within the brain
A vapored smog depress
To kidnap and take hostage life
Clouding of consciousness

Philosophy of Tolerance

There’s a practice amongst humans
Where opinions are a vent
To understand the raison d’être
The purpose; no relent
To box in categories how
Just each conjecture lies
To label them philosophy
Postulate and theorise

Then each of these is made into
A system of beliefs
A way; a vision; attitude
That aims to give relief
To human constant questioning
Of what has gone before
Or what will happen in the next
What’s through life’s tight sealed door

But still the bottom line is this
That whilst we might believe
In select ideas and outlooks
That we choose to conceive
All have a perfect credence
When they are bought into
For minds aid understanding
When hearts have buy in too

And so why some fight; go to war
Dictating what is right
Just seems to block perspective
And fails to have insight
For there’s a patchwork blanket
That spreads across the Earth
Humanity’s opinions
The bedrock that gives worth

The values each subscribe to and
The ways they want to be
Opinions, sentiments and thoughts
To comprise philosophy
So in essence it might be the case
That there’s more than one way
If we all chose to synchronize
With tolerance each day

Dreams Fulfilled

In life there are so many things
That stand right in our way
A million blocks that circumvent
Our dreams; our hopes delay

But with a will of fortitude
Of strength and true resolve
Let’s creatively determine
To not let them dissolve

Nor diffuse them in the ether
To vanish out of sight
But courageously take up cups
And mantles with full might

Let’s work out pathways through the mist
Dispelling clouds for sun
To shine; illuminate the way
So inspiration runs

And then we’ll live lives; dreams fulfilled
With difference to impart
That touch, caress and so uplift
The contents of our heart

Gossip’s Cup

If you drink from gossip’s cup
You will surely find
That by the power of hearsay you
Manipulate your mind
To take on what is said
More so than what you see
Sipping opinions lest the facts
That have toxicity

For gossip is mere rumour
Idle talk; some outright lies
That can destroy lives in it’s path
If none dare to then try
To differentiate between
What’s said and what is fact
Then make their mind up and lash out
With horrible impact

To alienate or to pull down
The innocent or pure
For there is sometimes little truth
In no smoke without fire sure
For gossip drinking is unwise
With potential to inflame
To hurt; to damage or to cause
Destruction by their game

So temper what you listen to
And test out, think again
And do not cast the first stone less
Your words have honest gain
And use your conversation
To lift up less upset
Resisting gossip’s evil cup
And cast perspective’s net

Traffic Lights

Oh traffic lights please turn to green
Through amber spectrum go
And do us all a favour please
To help the traffic flow

For when you’re red you irritate
And make us all so late
So please remain a go go green
To pacify our state

And help us journey without hitch
No stopping in tracks dead
But let us travel – carry on
Please lights do not shine red!

Doubt

This was inspired by fellow blogger’s poem Self Worth. Check out his writings – they are fab :-)

A little doubt is helpful
For awareness shall we say
A check that rids us of conceit
That stops us falling prey
To arrogance; pomposity
But go too far and then
That doubt becomes self limiting
And pushes us again
Into a place uncertain
Where nothing seems quite right
Cos there we lose all self esteem
Ourselves fall out of sight
So the best that we can aim for
Is a fence on which to sit
That strikes the balance in between
Self doubt and puffed up wit
