                                                Awareness Aid

 

Some words loose

A new beginning upon the world

 

And their readers sense

That fact is constituted

By truth of course

But by premise also

 

In other words,

Those words know

What’s “sightfully” real

But they also know

What’s insightful

 

Yet, why has this poem

Had so many changes

Even though so many people

Say “nothing ever changes”

 

And is it unfortunate

That mankind won’t know

What this writing said

Before changes changed it

 

Or should readers

Be content to learn

That its words eventually

Tired of sameness

And complacency

And then sought out hedonism

Whose tenets then allowed

Said poem to decorate

A new décor within the present

 

Oh, I fear that’s so confounding

Now, and yet, I believe

Herein is contained now

Such clarity of purpose

 

And that clarity

Illustrates the magnitude

Of all that’s present,

While it simultaneously

Fastens reader’s focus

Upon the certainty

Of eternity

Hey everyone I'm new to this group so thought I'd say hello. I have wrote a book of poetry which I self published. It's called Different Kinds of Emotions and is available through amazon kindle.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend.

         WINDOW VIEWS PART THREE:  OUTSIDE LOOKING INWARD

 

                                       Written By:  R.F. HUSNIK

 

 

It’s overwhelming out here,

despite so much construction

so much landscape remains unoccupied

and despite so many roadblocks

so many people are still

traversing on the “straight and narrow”

 

And with that said

I think we’ve alluded to a truth

incontestable:  and that is

all we’ve learned has come

from either the knowledge of others

or our own personal discovery

 

But out here, as on the inside,

what’s been learned

is only one significant trait

of humanity – and

another is that remnant

of God-given correctness

which still resides within

each mortal, though it’s been

compromised drastically by sin

 

And that remnant affords

mortals the opportunity

to do what’s right,

though it seems a number

of Earth’s temporal inhabitants

don’t really care about rightness

 

Still, out here, we’ve realized

that to be in the right

we must seek

improvement – continually; and yet,

don’t our thoughts sometimes

stray to those who today

are living inside where

most likely their

climates (and lives)

are controlled mechanically

 

And hasn’t a dual obligation

been imposed upon them

on the inside. First

to honor those who,

successful here, on the outside,

wish to remain here, and

second, to assist those who,

in peril here, outside, look

reluctantly inward
