Life's little contemplations

picture source:

There’s nothing light about breaching the borders,
it is chaotic, destructive and dark,
it’s seeing the cruelty hidden behind artful facades,
feeling naked malice, intent and betrayal,
it means facing your beliefs, your fears, your deepest memories,
staring them in the face until you can see past their proximity,
giving you the courage to free yourself, lift yourself beyond
the grasp of the makers of this make-believe called ‘life’.


  1. I think I'll stay on this side of the border.

  2. This photo is so simple yet so beautiful and very contemplative words ~ thanks,

    Happy Weekend ahead to you ~ ^_^

  3. G'day sweet Ms. V!!!
    life = make believe, I like that.
    My favorite today is your reference to "cruelty hidden behind artful facades", Yes, indeed. That says it all,

    Hope you're doing well dear one.

  4. Art is usually the reflection of a person's thoughts and beliefs. For many others though, art is a medium to express a person's fantasies or a make belief world with things that he/she would otherwise not relate to. Hence, it is possible for people with seemingly similar preferences/tastes in art to have extremely different perspectives and beliefs.

    Loved reading. You're really good at expressing your thoughts in rhyme and measure :)
