Field Of Vision



You've all heard the phrase “field of vision” What we see with the naked eye But some things that are beyond our vision Have effects on both you and I Must always try reading between the lines Where real meanings often hide People are not always honest and up front Sometimes they take you for a ride Most refrain from hurting other's feelings But some have a nasty streak Hidden meanings aren't always that obvious Don't get fooled by doublespeak So try getting down to the real meaning Look past your “field of vision” It will ultimately save you a big ton of grief Make it your lifelong mission © Jack Ellison 2013

    So true, Jack. That said, I don't bother to go searching for people's real meaning behind doublespeak. If they can't say it outright, is it worth knowing? Nice writing, as ever. :)

    We miss you guys. There's an empty echo here... or... No! It's just the dragon mimicing me... Quit repeating me, Silly Dragon!

    This is so true Jack! You must look past your "field of vision" and help your fellow man, be with others, and help one another! You have presented a magnificent poem my friend! I loved what you have done with this piece, such a fantastic poem, Great Work!!
