For the visually challenged reader, the image shows a pair of spectacles to which a pair of rose-colored clip-on attachment is affixed. You can see a view of skyline near a shore through these colored clip-ons.

Times have changed, so much has been lost,
Yet no-one accepts or imagines the cost.
I cover my eyes so as not to see
What is the truth lying before me.
They had it all, but threw it away
And now they call upon Me and pray.
I can shield my face, turn a blind eye
Only to wonder and ask myself why?
Pretty colours, of roses and blue
Enhance falsehood beauty to the view.
What lies beneath is dirty and vain,
Corruption and evil raise their heads again.
I view from a distance away from the sun,
Thinking and watching of things long undone,
Nothing is honest, I hide behind the lens,
Hoping that something is found to cleanse
The hearts and souls of Mankind’s best
Then my concerns can be laid to rest.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
