Can You Look Beyond The Shallow Poem by Daniel Hooks

Can You Look Beyond The Shallow

Rating: 5.0

Can you look beyond the shallow?
To find a deeper meaning which is true.
Can you look beyond the shadows?
To find a philosophy for you
Can you find hope in times of madness?
to bring you through your despair
can you find strength and guidance
in the books over there
can you find faith
in actions good works and deeds done
can you find solace when the game is lost and not won
can keep both eyes open
when others with prejudice are opposed
can you find meaning where there seems to be none or it is supposed
, then my friend you'll never lose and the battle will be half won.
For how we perceive and what we believe
Makes us whole
a heart that looks beyond the shallow
will find what it looks for it will find its goal.

Summed up wonderfully well by the last two lines. If we can look beyond the shadows we will find the rainbows. Thank you for this lovely reminder Daniel. from Fay.
