The Perception of Life

 article about The Perception of Life

Sometimes life is happy,

Sometimes life is sad,

Sometimes it is all black,



The struggle-

Between all emotions that can be experienced,

Is a struggle within oneself.

A never-ending surfacing and plunge.


Sometimes it's a choke-

Just under the bottleneck,

Before one can squeeze out,

And be free.


Other times- it's in an open space,

But somehow-

However big the space is-

There is a refusal to move: static.


One can die-

But one can also live,

In struggle or in an open space,

It is simply a matter of perception.


Indeed- strangely,

The perception of life.

May determine its outcome,

Regardless of one's circumstances
