i can see
by Michele Schottelkorb
this confusion is spinning me
halting me, I cannot see
this violation is catching me
throwing me, I cannot see
this pain is quickening me
deadening me, I cannot see
this world is beating me
healing me... I can see
Author's Note: i would like to add more stanzas in the future...

Neat literary reflection of how the world brings us full circle; no choice but to take the bad with the good.

Yes, SEEING what is, rather than imposing what is. And SEEING the positive aspect of life, rather the life it self, as it IS. More stanzas, you shall.

This is an excellent verse that details how our perceptions alter the way we "see" the world. Great read.

Strong imagery through out. Intriguing theme. I think it needs a couple of transitional stanzas before the last line. Though powerful they seem abruptly placed.

More stanzas would certainly round it out a little, but it's strong and ponderous as it is. I think of it as improving and strengthening to the toils of life. Very nifty poem.
