Seeing Clearly

Updated on February 3, 2011

Solitary yet not isolated...

On the brink of rationality


wondering if the contrast

so obvious to the eye

will be enough

caring but not

internal conflicting

questioning one's substance

bluff or substantial

If he be  rational

then why alone

is the world mad

or is rationality madness of it own

forming the world

complete and unchanging in the mind

but how can that be sane

when nothing stays the same

would think that variation can be made rational

a new or old variable amongst the rest

Is this how he saw it

thus his comprehension staying sound

dedicated to a rational foundation?

but then why alone

or requiring wider experience, 

contact to find its fellows

would think if he be sane

ready company would abound

food for thought.

      My definition of insanity is doing the exact same thing the exact same way and expecting a different result...luckily I am learning ...

      That is very kind of you. I have to remind myself what the definitions of insanity are on a frequent basis.

      The world probably is mad, or just preoccupied with trying to please and be pleased, having itching ears. Where does morality enter in, or sanity? What ever happened to "live and let live?" Why when someone is different, is that difference so readily condemned, or questioned? As individuals, each is "different" in his own way. "Caring, but not internal conflicting" shows confidence which may unnerve others who have much internal conflict.

      Thank you for the food for thought!
