    thank you kind poet you are life as i see it

    daroc: no not everyone has the vision, that is my contention there should not be a reason too still be "searching" in this day and time, superstitions
    still have strangle hold on our conscious

    you make my point without even realizing it, there would be no
    need for "faith and hope" if we were living by spiritual divinity using the universe in a way much like you use an iron to iron your clothes, i don't know if i'm making my point clear but open up let the light come thru, not everyone life on earth or who has ever lived had always seen or had it the best, if that was the case we wouldn't have thing called suicide, but my point is if you're born we see you get the most out of your one chance at life, but not at the expense of others which is the case now, we have the mental ability to override such speciousness

    $$$RICH$$$: - thank you for seeing the limit because there is one, one that we placed on ourselves peace poet

    lovealexandria:
    you question show me you understand deep within your core what i speak, because i'm speaking life and you hear me, the problem is our programming gets in the way of "seeing" but you can feel and what is the purpose of your suffering and or anyone suffering? great question
    what we value has to change because the real "change" is at our crest

    Khasm13:
    i know what you mean, i'm thinking of an african child looking for food infested with flies and their arms blown off yea there'll be stronger
    so to speak but at what cost?

    1poet: thanks for the love i forgot to put "lol" at the end of my poem
    i'm not mad i'm disappointed in our level of thought so finite and fixated
    on the nonsense of course but eating and sleeping is not nonsense, it's the nonsense one has to go thru to live in EURO-PERVERT-MANIA

    PurpleMOONS: paying to live paying to die, i see i'm not crazy, yes isn't there something wrong with this concept? i reached my point i can't turn back now
    i'm tired of being suckered and i hope your too, but understand change will not come easy and it WILL be ugly but think of it like this
    crack an egg open and it looks all nasty but nuture that same egg
    and a beautiful baby chick comes out!

    Are our experiences in this life supposed to drain us, sap us of all energy, or should our experiences leave us feeling renewed, with added knowledge from lessons learned? This piece makes me ask even more questions, which I do appreciate, more than you know. As usual, I respect your pen.

    DSS, THIS WAS CONTEMPLATIVE FOR ME. I FEEL THAT WE HAVE ALL CHOSEN THIS LIFE BEFORE WE GOT HERE. THIS ONE THAT YOU HAVE CHOSEN ARE LESSONS TO BE LEARNED AND/OR TO TEACH OTHERS. IT IS IN THE POETRY YOU ARE ABLE TO REACH OTHERS... THIS WAS REALLY NICE, INTROSPECTIVE AT IT'S BEST.:geek:
