All you Need to Know

Living in a fantasy of yesterday’s dreams,
while hope for tomorrow fades from sight,
caught in the fast pace of earthly scheme,
unable to distinguish the wrong from right.

Misguided perception often leads our way,
in this land dominated by power and greed,
survival is trying to make it through the day,
consumed with want and desire without need.

In the crossroads of life we must choose a path,
decisions made are cast in stone to forever last,
truth and consequences brings unwanted wrath,
for what we did or didn’t do will haunt our past.

We attempt to escape through mindful illusion,
which only brings us short term peace of mind,
life is a struggle caught in unsettled confusion,
each step of the journey we learn from the past.

Life is a spiritual quest of our body and soul,
which takes us wherever the wind will blow,
our trials and tribulations have a price, a toll,
the meaning of love it is all you need to know.

We often live our lives in some kind of illusion trying to please others and be what we are not.

I enjoyed your perceptions of our daily choices and sometimes conceptions/misconceptions. I hope tp be allowed to read more.

Life is made up of so many incidentals, and happenings on the 'toss of a coin'....our lives often just 'happen' and we are blown wherever the wind takes us...I think we are all still trying to make some sense of it every day of our lives....You have captured that feeling expertly in this poem...

It is a crazy, mixed up world we life in and I imagine each of us contributes a little of our own craziness to it daily.
