Illusions

For my 9th post for the  Blogging A to Z Challenge, I decided to write a poem on illusions and perceptions that all too often colour our lives.

I for ILLUSIONS

Illusions

Our lives regarded
Coloured and painted
Viewed from our mind’s eye
Senses, our attention vie

Visions of you
From my point of view
Real or mere illusion?
Clear or clouded with delusion?

Visions of me
Will you let me be?
Unchanged and carefree
Unrealistic expectations, bury

Life is what we make of it
With sufficient wisdom, well lit
Think we are happy, so we are
Think we are not, discontent mars

Why be unhappy, discontented, sad?
Life is lived once, don’t make it bad
Be hopeful; In all things, see goodness
Fill your heart with joy and gladness

    Great. Sometimes it’s difficult to sort out the illusions in our lives, we are very good at deceiving ourselves, let alone other people. ~Liz http://www.lizbrownleepoet.com
