Shifting Shifts Shift

Perspective is to stand in one position and view –

the whole is not in play; it is not possible for us.

I move position within myself – my perspective changes; my view alters, but still I am unable to comprehend the whole.

I apply previously formed filters to my point of view; attempting to force-feed my mind.

My comprehension rests upon me like a vapor, stirringly unsettled as I attempt to grasp.

Being human.

is a form of abuse

upon self.


It sucks

Emotional pain ignored

becomes water-borne perception –

syphoned later by atmospheric pressure

with inverted, unequal legs.



Thanks to technological advances,

we now have more time to use technology.

Contradiction #9

Truth is not always found

in honesty.

Contradiction #8

Other people are not a source of peace or happiness;

but something deeper –

an experience of ourselves.

Yet, without other people,

we may not experience peace or happiness.

Contradiction #4

To attain happiness,

we must first risk becoming miserable.
