L. B. Mek

inherent Truth

 

a natural result of repetition 

is inevitable manipulation

resulting in eventual distortion 

of its purpose, at origination

whether this results in its evolution

or devaluation

is all up to your perception

    Oh my, L.B. I like that. I worked for an an art director once, who talked like that.

    • L. B. Mek

      nice, I especially feel a sense of accomplishment if you approve my shorter length scribbles, like a tentative student gaining a passing grade from a grandmaster they admire: I'm humbled, thank you Jerry!

      "Repetition" can be a useful poetic tool or it can ruin a poem. Here the partial repetition if your line endings adds to the poems value, It demonstrates for the reader exactly what the poem is trying to convey. Interesting read. - Phil A.

      • L. B. Mek

        perfectly summarised! I'm so grateful when insightful poet's like yourself interpret my feeble efforts with such clarity, it's a wonderful source of motivation for me
        thank you, for taking the time to read, analyse and critique with a supportive mindset, dear poet

        So true Mek but if you can perceive it correctly all will be as it should.

          ain't that just the infuriating element at the core - of it all, my friend
          only at our precipice do we glean those truths
          that validate our lives worth and 'perceive'
          meaningful value in each gifted breath
          so often: far too late..
          thanks for the insightful comment Andy

          Could you repeat that?

          • L. B. Mek

            perfectly tuned wit: exemplified with accessibility's ease, lol
            thanks for the unexpected chuckle

            Wow.... boom.. love it! And love it again my friend. That's a beautiful view, don't forget it or maybe let it help you find the place to rest and sleep..

            • L. B. Mek

              yup, angled with the right intent - a landscape view does help put everything in its context and help ease away those restless nights,
              appreciate your wise words of reassuring support my friend, thanks for investing you time in my humble scribbles

              Awesome!! You've summed up my daily routine!😁

              • L. B. Mek

                well, that's just: Awesome! lol
                thank you, glad you enjoyed the read dear poet

                is inherently so, as truth should not need to be repeated

                nicely done

                • L. B. Mek

                  well, maybe but who knows my friend, if inherent was innate then certainly
                  but when our instincts differ so divisively
                  who can blame anyone for trying to narrate 'their' fragment of truth, so intently..
                  thanks for the engaging comment dear poet

                • ron parrish aka wordman

                  and i agree 100%

                  • L. B. Mek
