Senseology III: A Sense of Direction

Senseology III: A Sense of Direction

A Poem by Richard McLin

3rd part of poem series of life.

Up: The sky holds no answers to those who can't look ahead. Astronomy is the stars playing tricks on those who belive in them. The heavens may not believe in you as much as you believe in them. All that goes up may not return to you on the way down. Up, up and away is just another way to describe things leaving you.

Right: No one has the rights they think they do. CENSORSHIP is an inappropriate word, yet is practiced everyday. Look to the person to your right for answers, they may be the shaman you're looking for. 

Left:  Nothing is left of the world that was left to us. Everyone take out your leftovers and feed the world. Look to the person to your right for questions, they believe you to be the shaman they've been searching for. 

Down: Look towards your feet, and convince them to move forward. Don't believe anyone who says you're down and out. Hell believes in you much more than you believe in it. Don't spend your life looking down, sometimes the clouds hold the answers.
