Yeah,
It's so much
easier, better if
we shut our eyes to the sorrow
of ignorance, and
pretend being
well.

  5. I love the shape of this poem, and I really like this phrase, "we shut our eyes to the sorrow of ignorance..." So much easier than doing the work.

    Namaste...........cj

  8. Its lovely short verse... I enjoyed it. The idea of shutting your eyes is good but it does not work for me at all.. the pain still lingers in the heart...

  9. So true. That's always the expected answer to "how are you?" It's the rare soul who really wants to know.

  10. Yes, we'll rather not be bothered with those putting brakes on us. We'll rather level our thoughts with those who can share ideas with us!
    Excellent thoughts!

  14. Clever poem... it's hard to be genuine but it's hard to be fake... and you can end up in a kind of limbo. There's hope though. And that ignorance and pretense won't last forever. :] xx

  15. Some time that is not so easy to do but you are right it is better to close our eyes and pretend we are well but inside we are not

  20. A blogger recently wrote that the most-told lie is the word: "FINE"! As the answer to "How are you?"

  21. Releasing the sorrow and closing my eyes to know it has been let go off has worked for me.

    I love your poem and the picture it paints.
