I write what I feel…




Why can’t others see

What my eyes are telling me?

Time and again through history

Bad choices by the majority

Lead us into misery – but

Do we learn from our mistakes?

Oh no, not us, we’ll always be

Blind to what some others see

As in the past days gone by

Barabbas was the one set free.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

  1. Brilliant and so true, adee. 😦


  2. Let us keep our fullness under wraps
    Until the opportune moment. Otherwise
    How should we outwit the presently unready?


  3. Sad but true we don’t tend to learn. Wonderful thought.


  4. we will be blind as long as we want to be…seeing only what we want to see…
    but denial doesnt make truth not true…smiles.


  5. That sounds an awful lot like what is going on here in the U.S. too.
