Nonsense in Allegory

Nonsense in Allegory

A Poem by Plagued Monumentally

If you seek through the eyes
of a believer
you will find the horizon somewhere
that a pessimistic won't
If you seek through the eyes 
of a golden retriever 
you will find that love can be found
anywhere
If you weep through the eyes 
of a confused man
you will see images of his former life
and his despair is surely a scare
If you compete through the eyes
of a perfectionist
you will weep when you seek to 
compete.

Thank you
Wise yet fun (the part about the golden retriever) This shows the ability to empathize- you seem to understand all the points of view very well.

Seems like a wise write, with nice thoughts to it. I like how you did each stanza, the second I liked the most.

I love the way you look at all the different actions in this poem. The last one is a strong statement.

I like the eyes of a Golden retriever. A animal will love you and be your friend forever. A lot of thoughts create by this poem. I believe best to be your self. Seek what you need and be content with your life. Thank you for the excellent poem.
