May be simply unfair
But I punish
MYSELF
With no mercy
For goodness's shake

With full reliance
I stay afar from some people
Because
I wish to meet them
In next timeframe
In next dimension
In next pathway
In next lifetime
From the START

It's like this
NAMASTE

Theme: So it is
Maria Mitea Jan 9
we
humans, behave like a well-trained animal
who knows what tricks to do to get the bone
humans
we don't see it
but we're actually acting on behalf of the entire universe

and it's precisely because we don't see it
that we act in such sick ways

Particle of matter
Particle of thought
Different natures
Different behaviours
One follows definite
Laws of nature with
Predictable behaviour
It's the particle of matter
The other, the particle of thought
Comes from a mind's factory
Follows unknown trajectories
Simultaneously present
In multiple locations.
In people's minds
With possible mutations
Varied reaction at every location
Sometimes somewhere water
Somewhere fire
Consequences are dire
Social scientists
Keep on trying
Predicting social behavior
Writing social sciences
Thought particle would
Keep them frying
By a thought particle, I mean a thought or concept, simple or complex, represented by a word or a set of words.

The only image I found
Just after fallen asleep
is 'YOUR UNKNOWN BEHAVIOR '
:) It had erased my night sleep..
And in the morning
When I open my stressed, darkspot eyes
While thinking,
Whether you are going
to treat as yesterday 🙃..
It's the time to be
the real partner
with 'DIPPRESION'..
NEVER THINK ABOUT OTHERS A LOT..
YEAH! OFCOURSE YOU WILL..
BUT MAINTAINING THE LEVEL OF THINKING
ABOUT THE GOOD OF OTHER SHOULD
BE MAINTAINED..
OTHERWISE IT'S REALLY DIFFICULT
FOR US TO OVERCOME THEIR UNEXPECTED
ATTITUDES:)

You are not doing
as I expect of you and I feel bad

please could you behave
so I can have a good feeling and blame you

It seems
People are
Like drugs
With their expiry date
But
But the soul
Doesn't

Be that soul

will you entertain
or will you observe
in the circus of life
which type of person are you?

Did you decide who I was before or after you spoke to me?

Did you decide to speak to me - or not - because of how I was dressed, what I looked like, my job, my education, my choice of beverage, my height, my accent, or my scintillating conversation with your plus one about the benefits of suburban parking spaces?

And who are you? Do you know? Are you sure? Did you dress yourself or did your date choose that sweater for you? Did you grow that ironic beard for her? Are you happy in your work, or just pretend to be to keep the peace? Did you miss taking up that scholarship because your family moved out of state?
Did someone ask you to hold their glass while they whipped to the loo? Do you slouch to compensate for those years of dance lessons which make you look too...straight? Are you trying to hide that southern twang? Do you talk ******* when conversing with strangers and tend to come across as a complete *****?

I thought so, go figure!

The more I think about it, it becomes clear to me - ironically enough - that who we are and how we communicate, interact, love and live is based on a pancake stack of impressions and fragmented contexts; a continuum of sliced-and-diced perspectives, learnt behaviours, and erroneous assumptions. Life is a veritable rabbit hole, thank goodness for poetry! :)

‘Your assumptions are your windows on the world. Scrub them off every once in a while, or the light won't come in.’
- Isaac Asimov
