A Poem by RachelReaper



So how would you know

What's real,

What's not?

What's a little

White lie

For the sake

Of the show?

What show,

Or a saying,

But what does

That mean?

Black, Red, Pink,

Green, Purple, Yellow,

Blue, Orange, Grey,

Words across this page

So you think

The words I thought,


Walking through fog

You can't see

What's going to happen


A serpent attacks a

Restless ship on rocking


I made that,

Or did I?

Or are you having

The same hallucination

As I am,

As everyone else who

Reads this?

Whatever you want it,

Good sir, kind ma'am,

No rules for us.

What's to confine?

Everything means

Whatever comes to mind,

We are, after all,

I believe the meaning of these words is that things are not always what they seem and that each and every one of us interprets things in this word differently. Though I could be wrong, but either way this is a great poem that holds a lot of character.

vAspects of institutions

Although individual, formal organizations, commonly identified as "institutions," may be deliberately and intentionally created by people, the development and functioning of institutions in society in general may be regarded as an instance of emergence; that is, institutions arise, develop and function in a pattern of social self-organization, which goes beyond the conscious intentions of the individual humans involved.
As mechanisms of social interaction, institutions are manifest in both formal organizations, such as the U.S. Congress, or the Roman Catholic Church, and, also, in informal social order and organization, reflecting human psychology, culture, habits and customs, and encompassing subjective experience of meaningful enactments. Most important institutions, considered abstractly, have both objective and subjective aspects: examples include money and marriage. The institution of money encompasses many formal organizations, including banks and government treasury departments and stock exchanges, which may be termed, "institutions," as well as subjective experiences, which guide people in their pursuit of personal well-being. Powerful institutions are able to imbue a paper currency with certain value, and to induce millions into cooperative production and trade in pursuit of economic ends abstractly denominated in that currency's units.[citation needed] The subjective experience of money is so pervasive and persuasive that economists talk of the "money illusion" and try to disabuse their students of it, in preparation for learning economic analysis.[citation needed]
