Hoax

We hear of hoax bomb threats
that knowingly scare so many
emergency personal on high alert
panic to cause maximum fear …

More irreversible damage is created
when we hoax ourselves that things
are as we wish, denying the reality
Deluding ourselves is a waste of life!

Pause to try and see the bigger picture
rather than weaving foolish fantasies
It takes real courage to face reality
which we’ve habitually avoided so long!

Acknowledge every hardship
as an opportunity to learn and grow
Be assertive rather than aggressive
Be wise and kind when confronting

For clarification and communication
ensure more meaningful connections
remain balanced and well grounded
for hoaxes vex like casting a hex ….

Simplify with direct sincere honesty
Denial and avoidance are obtuse
Clarify rather than confound
to live with fully enhanced senses!

  1. One of the first time I have seen the use of the word hox so beautifully and meaningfully. To describe the denial we are living in. My fav lines from the poem”Denial and avoidance are obtuse”
    so true.

  2. This reminds me of any daily news paper full of the doom and gloom that seems to sell – daily soap operas with little reality. It is so nice to take the time to read how a stranger helps another stranger. While not everyone can – living organ donations saves lives. As well as those willing to gift parts of them after they ‘leave’. While some religions have the belief that a body must be whole – I feel it is more important for the soul to be whole. May we continue in simple choosing to do the right thing whenever we can.
