“It Lens Itself” (poem / poetry)

Looking for something, with these two peepers,

I glance, I stare, and then… jeepers creepers!

Twisted, distorted, scary sights form,

I look on in horror, while hearing applause.

I literally can’t believe what I’m seeing,

Is my view warped, or that of these other beings?

Maybe eyes are secondary lenses or worse,

Fed augmented projections, trained on the perverse.

Some things that are offensive to our eyes, others see and are amused or pleased by; or there may be things that only we seem to perceive, be it hallucinations, the mind tricking itself, or us tuning into something that is rooted in another plane of existence; either way, things don’t always add up.

The question is though, how do we reconcile such inconsistencies? I guess it depends on what we are witnessing to some extent, and how we as individuals are wired to process them.

However, the curve ball at the end of today’s piece is even deeper than this… what if our experiences (or instances of what we see) are being manipulated, modified, externally generated, and layered with fallacies?

Think of movies such as “The Truman Show”, “Total Recall” and other ones that flirt with these ideas. I could build on this line of thinking much, much more, but it’s so mega, that I’ll save some for another piece down the line.

My mind doth race, my pupils dilate! How does all of this relate to your own experiences and perceptions?

Love and Respect always,

Following Whispers.

Author: Following Whispers

Hello, I'm Following Whispers, an English poet and author who has been writing for around two decades. I'm a self-professed geek who can get deep sometimes, but I personally don't take myself too seriously, I just love to have fun, plus inspire myself and others. In my early twenties, I realised that beauty can be born out of not only love, but also pain and other motivations. The more I used writing poetry to make sense of my busy mind, the more it helped me to find a silver lining in even the darkest emotions, experiences, observations and topics; find positivity even in the face of extreme negativity; find strength when I was being forced to feel weak; and find hope that my tomorrows would be brighter. I began publishing my writing in 2018 and currently have three books available Worldwide, including my most recent release "Poems That Move You". I have bared my soul in each and every one of my poems, and I'm confident that you'll get just as much from reading them and relating them, as I did from writing them. Please feel free to look around my site and read the free poems I've shared there, after which, why not pick up a book of mine, drop by Instagram, connect with me and say hello!
