Ever Noticed?

Ever Noticed?

A Poem by Phill Oz O'fee
"

Hey .... look ....!

Ever Noticed?




Ever noticed how easy it is

To turn away, than confront a problem


Ever noticed how easy it is

Putting hands in your pockets, than to give


Ever noticed how easy it is

To tell a lie, than speaking the truth


Ever noticed how easy it is

Mocking others, than embrace diversity


Ever noticed how easy it is

Falling to temptation, than to abstain


Ever noticed how easy it is

Breaking a heart, than to mend one


Ever noticed how easy it is

Constantly thinking of yourself, than caring for others


Ever noticed how easy it is

Not to notice me, than to see who I’m talking about

I think a lot of people find it easier not to notice, rather than to face up to an issue. But even people who do, seem to do it with an ulterior motive. (ie, what's in it for themselves?). Such is the condition of the human species. Your poem is very effective, and the repeating line emphasises this. Well done.

Superb allegorical poem and image. Our shadow-self who knows the reality of ourself...unfortunately too easy to turn away from it and fool ourselves. Great couplet form, flow and cadence. Kudos!

The "easy" things have costs that often outweigh the effort of the "right" thing. Interesting form of satire here on social observation. Well done.

to spread love and kindness is not so easy...
takes work , the other side is easy, as you say here.
