What attracts us to another human being? When we believe someone to be physically beautiful, are they really? Or is it just the perception of our own mind? What appeals to one, may not appeal to another
How can we limit ourselves to giving someone the title ''sexiest person alive'' or ''miss universe'' when our definition of beautiful is defined in accordance with each individual?
Depending on a person's inner beauty, will often determine how we view them on the outside as well. But does this mean, once we start to know someone, that their outer beauty will substantially change? Or is it just how our minds perceive them?
A person will often have a ''right'' and ''wrong'' view on another individual, depending on what they/we consider to be inner and outer beauty.
What appeals to our senses, obviously goes further than our attraction to another human being. It relates to everything in life.
Each morning when I think of you I awake with a smile I jump out of bed, pick you up And hug you for a while
You climb down my top And nestle into my chest With your little head poking out There you happily rest
When I go out for the day I'm excited to come home and see you I can tell the feeling's mutual When you frantically run overto me Licking me like crazy
And you must really love Robbie too With the way you let him constantly play with you He makes you pull silly faces And puts you in funny (safe) positions And it never phases you a bit You just close your eyes and drift off into it
And when I notice you curled up safely in his hand While you both fell asleep together on the couch each night I watch and smile As I think it's truly a beautiful sight
Just like me You love to eat And when you smell food in the kitchen You run in and sit by my feet Waiting for your healthy treat
And when I give you something to munch on Gees you're funny to watch As you cantor down the hallway With this piece of food hanging out of your mouth While heading off to eat it in one of your 'safe' places in the house
When someone comes to visit You graciously greet them With plenty of kisses And a wag of your tail To you, they're like a new friend
I refuse to keep you locked up in a cage So the sun room became your room Although you prefer to be with us most of the time And Obviously we didn't mind
When it's cold you make yourself comfy amongst the layers of the spare doona on the couch Sometimes, shivering myself as I Iay in bed, I lie there with a smirk on my face Thinking how spoilt you are But I don't mind as long as you are warm and safe
You First fell ill when you were about 5 months old I took you to the vet She suggested to euthanise you But I would have no part in it As I believed you would pull through
I wrapped you in a towel And for 6 days I nursed you in my arms Medicating you and softly, singing mantras in your ear Keeping you safe from harm
Every so often, Your weary head would raise to look up at me This is what began our bond that we shared You started to completely trust me As you could see how much I cared
The vet gave you two days to live But you survived another one and a half years And even though you're not always well You know that love and support for you are always here
Some people might think ''gees, she's only a rat!'' But little Dharma girl You are as much family to me As a dog or cat would be
Naming you Dharma was perfectly suited to you You are as kind spirited as the Buddha teachings themselves Giving nothing but loyalty, friendship and unconditional love You truly belong in an angelic realm up above
If i listened to the vet I wouldve missed out on all the laughs you give me And our friendship we share so honestly
Dharma, my heart feels completely open With you Thankyou little rattie I love you...
i wrote this after i watched a story on homeless people.
My name is Derrick, That's right I have a name, I'm not some feral That you may think is deranged
I was once like you Styled back hair Wearing a nice suit, With plenty of loot
Walking along Ignoring the 'scum' I'd pass on by These 'bums' probably cried at night as they laid in an alley somewhere Wishing for someone to love and accept them But did I notice or care?
No! I just looked and stared And kept walking
Then I made some wrong financial choices Losing my car, my house, then my wife
All of a sudden!
I found myself laying with the ''scum'' I so callously called Wondering where I went wrong in my life
I sit on a bench all alone Hoping someone will take the time to talk to me But they are just the same as I was Too busy with their own schedules To even notice I exist Wow... What a twist!
I now line up in the homeless shelter waiting to be fed I had so much, yet couldn't see Now I'm excited for a bit of soup and bread
I watch the cooks voluntarily, serve each of us food They're genuine, loving smiles bring hope and cheer to my heart Knowing that the rest of our day will be spent on the streets They still try to give each of us a good start
As I start to mingle with my own 'type' now The 'lessor' sector of society I learn, they're no different from you or me They're just the same They too, have feelings, good qualities and want to fit in And just like you...
Hi, my name is Harmony and i would like to share with you my journey through life as i express my deep inner thoughts and feelings through the art of poetry.
I have posted the order of my poems according to age. Starting from when i was nine years old, to the present.
