Perception

I sit and look and look and see
The variance in reality
And think to myself how very strange
That each one can just rearrange
The words writ on the self same page 
With different outcomes cross the age
All coming from the self same core
Yet changing somewhat to ensure
That what I see with my own eyes
May to your view remain disguised
Yet that’s just what perception holds
For what you call rubbish, I may call gold

Just A Thought …

Each day I am determined
To write a little ditty
A poem or some prose
That rhymes or … maybe doesn’t
An etching from my soul
My heart or from my mind
That help me understand the world
And fathom out mankind

And from the blue the topics
Just pop into my head
Whether I am feeling great
Or even just half dead
And where they come from is
A mystery for sure
But every day I jot down thoughts
To perceive more and more

So if they touch your soul
Uplift you; make you glad
Then that’s my job accomplished
Though sometimes they’ll be sad
And make you think or ponder
Or maybe question too
Is this the world we live in?
Whatever can I do?

But then that’s not a problem
When we challenge our mind’s mode
For good and bad and ugly
Form this world that’s our abode
So equally I hope it helps
When writing from the heart
To prompt us all to celebrate
The good or play our part!

Intolerant Society

Intolerant society
That always fails to see
The other side of the coin
That’s focussed on the “me”
That can’t perceive another’s thoughts
Or think another way
That has a mind-set that is fixed
That can’t see light of day

Intolerant society
Where is altitude view?
Blinded to perceptual vision
Failing to see the “you”
Where anything that’s different
Just simply can’t be right
Regarded so suspiciously
And laced in fearful sight

Intolerant society
A shameful place to be
A place that stands injustice;
Shunning diversity
A place where there will not be peace
Until the question’s asked
“How might that be, if in their shoes?”
Are you up to that task?

Intolerance

 

Beyond Shadows Of Doubt

When we obsess with what is wrong
We fail to see what’s right
We turn the lights out on our worlds
And only have the night

Where darkness so obliterates
The truth in many ways
Missing the good, the better stuff
That brightens up our day

So use the umbra to perceive;
The rays that shine behind
And go past shade with all intent
To refocus the mind

To concentrate on goodness and
The greatness all about
To chivvy up and bring a smile
Beyond shadows of doubt

Happy Perspectives (Haiku)

Subjective thinking
And wrong interpretations
Can cause much upset

Why not think again
Take the altitude view for
Happy perspectives

Happiness is a question of perspective - Glück...

Teenage Perception

Whatever can I do with them
They’re right out of control
I’ve tried to rant and tried to rave
I’ve tried to rock and roll
My character and even gone
Right down the silent line
But nothing seems to help them cope
And nothing’s ever fine.

They really are quiet difficult
Throughout these teenage years
What can I do? How can I help?
Perhaps they’ll turn to peers
And seek a little comfort from
Their baffling attitude
Oh the trials of adolescence –
Help me lift my parents’ mood
