Take Off The Dark Lenses… (Writer’s Digest Poem A Day Challenge) Prompts: Pessimism, optimism or mixture of two

What if I can’t?
What if you can?
What if I fail?
What if you succeed?
What if I am hurt?
What if you are healed?

Why are you always so down,
Filled with gloom and doom?
A spirit expecting the worst,
Things will turn out bad you assume.
Your life’s been hard in the past,
But the past lives in yesterday.
This moment right now is new.
Dark lenses bind you as a castaway.

I wish positivity for your heart and mind,
Life is filled with more light than you see.
But you have to seek it to find it,
Hope can set you free…

Stretching to the sky.

Climbing upward over time.

I view you in awe…

Perspective: A Rondeau

Fotor01006232315

It is about perspective, our world view,

Influencing what we accept as true,

Reality, child of our believing,

With passivity we adopt meaning,

Self-centered focus sets reason askew.

 

Without questioning data we accrue,

Falsity and deception may ensue,

We are hindered by not truly seeing,

It is about perspective.

 

Looking at your canvas, upon review,

You will see the colors chosen FOR you,

Will your world be painted while you’re dreaming,

Or with eyes open, your view be freeing?

Cognizance of our thoughts is overdue,

It is about perspective…

This is my first attempt at writing a Rondeau.  Inspired by “Cubby” http://reowr.wordpress.com/, who has introduced me to some fun challenges.  This particular style was difficult for me.  I suspect that is because I tried to fit such a multifaceted topic into a the confines of a small box!  I’m hoping it makes sense! Thanks for reading!
