A Poem for Thought

 May or may not be in book; not sure yet!


Transparency: A Virtue


Pretenders hide their goal to hurt you
Where some pretend to be what they are not
But true transparency is a virtue

So many play games; their purpose sought
Deception being a tool in winning
Until it seen through and one is caught

Relationship lost; the one is grinning
Walking away with no hurt feelings
For the game was theirs from the beginning

While the other spends time in healings
For as was thought this one was real
Time in recovery from the bad dealings

Hope in finding one that is the real deal
Remaining real to self and others to see
For real you've been to one's appeal

When real to self morals become key
Though pretenders hide their goal to hurt you
Your ethics keep as you do agree
True transparency becomes a virtue

Thoughts: Today moral and ethical standards in presentation of one's self is becoming more and more rare. Especially with Social Media making deception possible. Read meaning to Virtue according to Merriam-Webster dictionary at https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/virtue.  and meaning to Transparency at https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/transparency. When told by your boss you are the most honest, genuine, and transparent person at your job and that others can learn from you says a great deal about your presentation of self. But, what is crazy is when all you are doing is being yourself. Makes one wonder where did being your self in being transparent stop being the norm. And, in doing so, one having to become cautious of others. Good to always be yourself, no matter what the dealing is with another because today transparency is a virtue.

A little advice

  Looking back over some of my poetry I noticed in writing them, if I was stressed it showed in the poetry. I do enjoy very much writing and sharing poems. And yes sometimes it is a challenge, but a challenge I enjoy. However, if you don’t want your aggravation to show in your poems then I would advise not to write them when your stressed. In this, however, I guess it depends on what you are expressing in the poem. Just saying!

A Poem for Thought

What Am I Learning


Looking what I'm learning, It's discerning
For something's are not needed for me
Asking myself, what am I learning

I wonder to what this learning concerning
For what this learning brought I see
Looking what I'm learning, It's discerning

Refuse criminality for earning
For behind bars I will not be
Asking myself, what am I learning

Caring to learn my spiritual need
I will not allow force beyond this
Avoiding my learning of greed

As to social the world reflects as bliss
For friends of many, I only need few
To media drama brings learning amiss

My time in learning to this I knew
Looking what I'm learning, It's discerning
For my spirit to this does give a clue
Asking myself, what am I learning

Thoughts: While experience does equal learning; does that mean, we have to experience everything this world offers or what everyone else is experiencing? Such as criminality in ripping people off. Is this experience really a learning necessity or simply a way of getting ahead in a very wrongful manner. And Social Media where it seems to be a learning experience of drama to how many friends one has and/or the drama centered around these friends; A worldly experience of this kind I care not for, as I only need a few real friends. And there are many other worldly experience people partake in simple because everyone else is doing it. As maturing Christians we learn what to discern as necessary experience in asking what am I learning!
