"Perception" ... A Poem written by Big Virge 9/4/2013

For Some It Seems Perception ... LEANS ...
Toward THOSE Dreams of ... " FANTASIES " ...

But TRAGICALLY The CATASTROPHE ...
Is Perception ISN'T Better Than ... REALITY ... !!!
In FACT Thoughts Like These NEED Some CLARITY ... !!!

Perceptive Brains NEED To ... TAKE THE STRAIN ... !!!!!
And DEAL With The REAL Rather Than Leave The Keel ...
UneVenLY Balanced And ... PAINFULLY Challenged ... !!!

By This ... What I Mean ...
IS ... " Living The Dream " ...
AIN'T ALL That It ... " SEEMS " ...

Sometimes Within Life You HAVE To FACE Trials ...
That REALLY AREN'T That Nice ... !!!!!

NO TIME For DENIAL Or ... " Jeremy Kyle " ... !!!!!!!!!!!!
THAT Line Makes Me Smile ... !!!

What's Up With THAT SHOW ... ?!?
Perception FULL BLOWN WITHOUT The ... " Green Mile " ...

NOBODY Can Know Another Mans' WOES ... !!!
Perception Is Something ... Reality BLOWS ... !!!!

When Comfort Zones Go And FALSEHOODS Unfold ..................
Perceptions of People Make Some Turn To EVIL ... !!!

... "He ain't no bad guy, he don't know the game !
... We'll make him feel like, he's sweeter than cane !"

See ... " Kindness For Weakness " ...
Can Leave People ... TEETHLESS ... !!!

It's ALL A Deception This FAITH in ... " Perception " ...

... "He's got to sell drugs, just look at his mug,
... and look at his hair, it makes me feel scared !"

See Perception's A LAIR Where Cats Should BEWARE ... !!!
Cos' Reality BITES Just Like Those ... BED MITES ... !!!

Affecting Your Sleep When Thoughts Start To ... "creep" ...
INTO YOUR CONSCIENCE Because of PURE NONSENSE ... !!?!!

Like ACTS of Deceit That Leads Some To ... "CHEAT" ...
And Treat Their Beliefs Like Leaves Blown On Streets ...

THROWN Here And There In FACT ... EVERYWHERE ...
As If What They KNOW Just CANNOT Be So ... !?!

Now THAT DON'T Add Up ... Perception And TRUST ...
TRUST What You KNOW ... NOT What Is On SHOW ... !!!!!

THE HYPE's Been DEFINED PERCEIVE What You Like ... !!!

I Deal In What's FACT NOT Fantasy Acts ... !!!!!

It Seems That Most Minds PERCEIVE What They Like ...
Rather Than Walk The Path Where DARK Finds The Light ... !!!

Perception Will ALWAYS PREVAIL In These Types ...
Who Just CANNOT Face The DARKEST of Times ... !!!!!

Because They THEN SEE What REALITY Feeds ... !!!!!
SEEDS And SEAMS That Sometimes Seem ...
As If THE DREAM AIN'T Quite So Clean ... !!!!!

But Truth Be Told As Time U N F O L D S . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

It Is Just What It NEEDS To Be ... !!!!!
FILLED With ... Vagaries of Scenes ...

Scenes of MORE Than PETTY Wars ...
Scenes of PEACE And YES BEAUTY ...
And EVEN Scenes of .... UNITY ....

Which ALL EMBRACE ... " REALITY " ... !!!

But Reality's SEAMS AREN'T ALL Like These ... !!!
It's Balance and TRUTH That In MY VIEW ...
SHOULD Be USED To School The Confused ... !!!!!

Cos There Are A Few Who'd Rather CHOOSE ...
Perception OVER ... What Is TRUE ... ?!?

So Is Perception BETTER Than ... " Reality " ...
These Days I Can SEE How To Some It Can Seem That It May Just Be ... ?!?

I Guess That's The LESSON That Leaves MANY STRESSING ...
The Ideas of INCEPTION That Minds Be ACCEPTING ...

So Here's My LAST QUESTION ...
Is It All A Deception That's NEEDING CORRECTION ... ?!?

Or NOW An INFECTION That NEEDS To STOP Spreading ...
Peoples' CONCEPTIONS ... of Life Through ...

............... " Perception " ...............
