Perspective and Purpose

perspectives lens a mass of water
distorting purview and plot
what we see and where we go
from inside dissatisfaction
we may malnourished starve
swimming in circles
with the choices we can find
inside our operating framework
we may delay so long underwater
we forget the choice to breathe
unless we face discomfort
pause and submit to open
to other views and ways of being
we may pursue the same old pleasures
until the passtimes become
our very sense of identity
hemmed in by limitations
a toxic authenticity
idle pleasures that never amount
to a sense of purpose
