Comments received on poems by Munro



What are we ? Why are we here ?
Munro said:

Hi Yellowrose
It’s strange In life if we had perfection it wouldn’t work
There would no point to advance
Or overcome however cruel and painful ,I’m not religious ,but if Everyman was like Jesus and every woman like the Virgin Mary , where would it go , what would be the point of poetry , what would we write about , after one day , how perfect the world is , we have to have lows to enjoy a high , if it was a permenant high , boring , I wouldn’t need to write my last two poems , because it would be perfect , in life ,

Life is to be lived … or what is the point … we’re not here to suffer or hurt , it makes zero sense . So how can you understand life when you have to go through so much sadness … that makes me question life

Questions asked - some of which I cannot answer. I know I\'ll never discover the meaning of life! All we can do is try our best to be fair towards others, and enjoy life while we are here.

Ageless questions Munro, as asked many times before.
Having developed a faith I believe i have found a few answers which are a comfort when peering at the unknown.
I have shyed away from man made beliefs such as christianity for it has been muddied and steered away from truth by too many interferences of man over the last two millenia. Such that we now see the biggest christian church has become the wealthiest organisation on the planet (google confirms).

Absolutely true. Some people never learn, even after searching. We see terrible things everywhere we go, and acts of kindness are often overlooked. Much enjoyed the read Munro. Always question life.

Doggerel Dave said:

Deep philosophical questions, Munro – which some spend a lifetime in an attempt to find an answer.
On the question of actual existence and nothing more, I personally have only found one answer partially satisfactory: We are here because we are here.
As for the others, studies continue in the Social Sciences, in particular Psychology and Sociology.
Keep at it mate – these questions cannot be raised too often.

In my case my love increases each year, even now after my wife departed this life, she is always here for me.

Munro said:

Thanks Andy ,
There’s people in wheel chairs
Enjoying a one life even tho disabled
And people fully functional cause distress with cruelty and death

Thanks so much Marie
We are never free one way or another
Interesting quote by Jean , we make our own chains , we are invisible slaves in a way , but not comparing the sad plight of real slaves

Marie said:

Dear Munro, your poem reminds me of the words \"“Man is born free but everywhere is in chains\" spoken by the Geneva-born political philosopher, Jean-Jacques Rousseau. Are the chains of our own making or have we allowed others to wrap the chains around us? Most are not strong enough to say \"Stop!\" and live their life as they want to live it, sadly. A very thought provoking write, finely penned. Thank you for sharing, dear poet...

That’s right ,
Our brains are recorders
We are human recording machines
Making our own documentaries

Robert Haigh said:

We only have one life, and it is ours. We should live it in a way we can be happy with. There is always someone somewhere, telling us how we should live our lives. I\'m not saying we shouldn\'t listen to advice, but the final decisions should be ours.

Sometimes people don’t mean to waste years of their life . We can’t always live our life the way we might want to ..,, although we should be able to ,

Thanks so much Nicholas
It’s a song I wrote , the lyrics
Nobody is interested in the song
So I thought I’d share it’s optimism
