What If We Are Created Perfect?: A Rhyme with Food for Thought

Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.


Perfection of character is this: to live each day as if it were your last, without frenzy, without apathy, without pretense.

-- Marcus Aurelius

What if we are perfect creators of all our crap

including every disharmony that's deep inside

with all of our health issues and every mishap

with reasons why we ever suffered and cried.

We are incredibly powerful at messing it all

while foolish enough to blame it on the others

seeing external reasons for each and every fall

not realizing that it's something in us that bothers.

With that same power destructive and crazy

we could start creating harmony and joy

only if our minds were not so lazy

to remove what may annoy.

It's our inner job, and reality just obliges to serve

while we are thinking it's all the other way around

not seeing how each of us gets what we deserve

yes, we just reap what we planted in that ground.

When we complain we get more of the same

and it's also true when our joy breeds success

excuses of "imperfection" are nothing but lame

along with "victimhood" from self-inflicted stress.

Try to picture a perfectly tuned violin in your mind

in hands of someone who never learned to play

think of the mankind as "orchestra" of that kind

so how could any "music" be possible that way.
