Perception !!

Poetry By: attanasio

I was thinking about how we percieve the world around us. I felt compelled to write about perception.

Perception

*

*

Sensory input, rationalized mentally

Conjured and intuitive assessment

Conceptual, biased reality, imagined

Mental recreation of fact; perception

*

We see what we want to see,

And hear what we want to hear.

"I can't believe he was a killer,"

"He seemed like such a nice guy"

*

"She is such a slut"

"He is a selfish bastard"

"She is a bitch"

"He is a womanizer and a cad"

*

Labels, based on perception

Judged reality by our assessment

Shared with others for validation

Of our own ambiguous imagery

*

Our own perception of ourselves

Not based on reality, but conjured

Camouflaged by desire and confidence

Blended with self-esteem and fantasy

*

Our lives are controlled by perception

Input from our senses processed

With semi-conscious assessment

Always question your perception!
