Emotion or Life Out of Focus - by - Bob Atkinson

Life Out of Focus
(c)2016 Bob Atkinson

we try our best to arrange
our world in some state of array
we feel we've done a superb job
when all remains cool, calm

then temper, fury, outright rage
flares when some strange event strays
into our life of simple focus
knocks us directly off our balance

we grab a tool for adjustment
time for emotion to reconcile disruption
as if twisting of a camera lens
we need clear vision thus amended

we've changed our outlook just a little
see acutely again, with different usage
emotion's our method of re-adjustment
in adapting to life's abutments

those bridge supports we walk through
when we take our traveled views
what we think as normal here
re-focused by emotional atmosphere

thus emotion fits our need
a simple mechanism to our brain free
from conscious consideration of
all we see, all we love
