Pseudo world

We live in a hypocrite world.

The minds of people are clear yet pertubed.

When you whine, they call you depressed,

Though in seclusion, they are equally messed.

When you shout, they call you insane,

But when they do the same, you should not disdain.

When you move on, they call you heartless,

And overlook all your sacrifices, regardless.

When you seclude yourself, they blame your ego,

Right to personal space is your privilege though.

They detest your forthright approach,

And then identify you with thoughts of reproach.

When you make a practical decision,

You become insensitive in their opinion.

Those days seem to have disappeared,

When genuine, rightful and sincere thoughts were admired.

People have become so overcritical,

Indeed, a situation hard to tackle.

Now we live in a fault-finding society,

And the solution lies only with The Almighty.

      Like the topic, well done. We need to be less critical and more understanding. Thanks

      Zoya it lies with following your higher mind. That is work at familiarizing yourself with more of your noble aspirations and see how/where you can earth them.

      The world at large has built itself on too many little lies which have become BIG lies.

      The world is not at it seems.

      Those that parade as the good guy or good gal could well wear a dark evil mind together with a good guy and good gal just being that.

      I would encourage you to connect more strongly with your gut feelings. This will help you enormously to discern.

      I like poetry too.

      I also write poetry-try too:)

      So true, people are so judgmental. I have heard that people who constantly judge and criticize others are judging them for faults that they too have. Great poem!
