Childlike Perceptions

    Life is a contradiction: Life is a contradiction within itself. After every storm there is sunshine, every tragedy brings opportunity for new life and with it, change, struggle, triumph and disappointment. We choose the depth and heights of our joys and sorrows as we live, by how we live. Hope is indeed a blessing for every journey we make, and through it's presence we learn that the villains that lurk in every fairytale are indeed very real. They are real on the outside, and they are real on the inside, and every once upon a time's happily ever after has a new once upon a time with the same characters in each stage of the play, but with hope, we learn that continuing transformation of the self can endure anything that life dishes out. It is nothing like it is in the child's mind. Indeed cruel is the picture they get.

Ruined Gems in Garbage Heaps

Rubble heaps midst herded sheep

Chaos of heavy people,loud people

Serenely wafting thru faceless crowds

Eyes to the sky above the lofty clouds

Devils abound clad in human shrouds

Mortgaged minds,ape-like manners

Glued to books- brandishing banners

Nevr the stars which in sky shimmers
