A Poem by Sam Freeland

requires trust

Everything we do
is a factor of how we feel
The degree we are aware
tells us what is real
Since every mind is different
reality follows close behind
giving meaning to our truth
and whatever we hope to find
One must try to accept
that truth can vary this way
So connections to others
will enjoy being okay
While many do not care
to share in this blessed state
Trying to go life alone
will bring an unhappy fate
When one is an island
with a rocky shore
It will say to family and friends
 you must be only a bore
The best course for them
is to stay far away
With troubles of their own
they won't be playing your way
Families get in this mode
from not wanting to try
When they learn to distrust
they never know why
Seeing this unhappy fault
there is something you can do
Be an example of trust
by showing others it's true

A very readable and enjoyable poem about truths. Why is it so hard for us to follow this sort of wisdom? Maybe it takes too long to accept it. Awesome!

Such wisdom in your words. We need patience and kindness for our family and friends. Each soul and desire is different. Need more or less. A outstanding poem. Ending made poem perfect.
