Ghosts - The Third Person - Poem by Paul Warren

When times are hard and all seems lost
And you are struggling with the cost
Loved ones come to you who have passed on
To talk to you and put context to the wrong

Scientists now are saying its a mechanism
Giving a chance to see through a different prism
And so we conjure an image of the dead
To give advice and move on ahead instead

But I can't see this to be the case
As these people have not come to face
With Our beloved who give support at this time
It seems too easy an explanation to find.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

It seems now that scientists are saying that seeing spirits of loved ones can be explained by a chemical reaction in the brain as a defensive mechanism. This defence gives the brain another perspective of the issue the person is facing. I think this a a convenient explanation.
