A Point Of View Expressed

Mellowed in a way no one would guess...
That stress, conflicts and disappointments met.
And beating unflavorable odds,
To squash surmounting tests.
Perhaps this is how an arrogance evolves...
To give the impression,
A point of view expressed...
Is the only one that is best!

Blessed and gifted,
With the right mix that blends...
A tempered outlook,
To defeat those challenges that begin.
With a struggle to survive,
Seemingly without end...
For them who thrive,
To keep a purpose inside alive!

Some ignore opportunities as chores,
And turn their backs away...
Instead of examining,
What is behind each door.
Frightened to respond to knocks...
And the meaning and purpose,
Goes for them once again...
Unexplored and stops.
Believing those who find their treasures...
Do it without frustrations,
And/or heartbreak to endure!
With nothing else to do,
But to review their stock!
In a contentment,
Which upon them dropped.

Not true say those...
Who have heard this before!
With bruises to show,
But choose to ignore!

Sometimes when we are searching for answers we realise that they come at a cost, like our eyes being opened to something we may not have wanted to see, but yet we keep on searching, our tanacity to look forward, not holding on to the woes but feeling the change that draws us closer to a greater place, life goes on but we are changed and moved by its every action, we must keep up the evolution, keep moving to keep the lamp alight Thankyou for this Lawrence All good things your way Love duncan X
Believe it OR not, I do have a sense of humor Theo. But you know the mind of the poet? Trying to find 'how' the colors of the rainbow are connected AND 'why' those particular colors? This too shall pass!
Bravo! What is an angel chart, Lawrence? Read your letter, and i have heard of sign charts, like i am a scorpio, but what is an angel chart anyway? Duh? Hey this is good, but you still sound down! Take Home Chef Theo
