Self Image Who We Think We Are - by Bob Atkinson

Self Image
Who We Think We Are
(c)2015 Bob Atkinson

who we think we are
determines how we act
an overblown delineation
of fiction over fact

as life progresses toward
that end we hold so dear
wandering determination
overcomes our fears

'tis said this mental picture
describes what others see in us
and forms articulated vibes
which point to us what must

must be done or carried with
to fill our duty clear
a cloth to cover up our faults
and wipe away our fears

no open form caged within
or sweetened beyond a thought
we live for everlasting words
which engulf us in our lust

lust for power carried through
to loving gentle ways
as we follow those who dance
with practiced steps in purple haze

that fuzzy view of all we see
allows some folks to find
a pure description of what's good
fixed conflicts with yours and mine

they give themselves something to
hold on to in their fright
a means to violent destruction
quick construction of a fight

a fight which knows no boundaries
'cept those eliminating
all progress from memory
combined with wild mood gyrations

so if you view yourself in marble
not changing with these times
you may, if nothing grabs your heart
be tossed out with your lies

those facts you see as absolute
which fix you in a form
a truly fouled up mess of life
that alters all good norms

and feeds on insincerity
casting truth out with the trash
and sets what shouldn't be believed
as firmly established fact
