Essence of Life

by Venkat

To not see things as they are
a sign of madness

To not see things as they are
a sign of stupidity

To not see things as they are
a sign of a dull mind

To not see things as they are
a sign of misunderstanding

Yet…

To not see things as they are
a sign of understanding

To not see things as they are
a sign of creativity

To not see things as they are
a sign of intelligence

To not see things as they are
a sign of enlightenment

To not see things as they are
an essence of life

  1. It is a conundrum, is it not . . . the technical laboratory of every poet . . .

  2. Its so true. We get so used to seeing and doing things one way that we close ourselves off to the idea that a different way is not necessarily wrong could actually be infinitely better
