Question: Do you see only what your heart dictates for you to see!?
I know what I'm TRYING to say here, would you share with me what YOU think I'm trying to say, I think I need your help! Thank you!.

Long line near shrine's entrance,
A miracle they've come to see!.
"She weeps, our blessed Mother!"
Proclaim the faithful as they leave!.
The skeptics, with shake of head
Respond, "No tears did we behold!."

Who is right!? Did tears flow!?
Strange dichotomy here at play!.
Believers see their desires reflected
While closed hearts, predetermined
Not to see, make dry eyes
Their reality!.

He looks at me, and though shed
Tears are wet upon my cheeks,
Still he sees nothing, the dynamics
The same!. I, like porcelain lady
Remain defined by his own cold
Heart projected upon my form!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

You are asking for honesty and this is my interpretation!. It is not directed personally!. Nonetheless, it is a very good writing!.

The strange contradiction shows that the porcelain lady doubts the miracles!. Seeing, she does not believe because she remains untouched by a personal experience!. The porcelain lady, even if touched with a miracle, would question the reality without faith!.
What causes the skepticism, the unwilling pottery, or the cold stone without feeling, or both!?

The question seems to remain because the poet is unsure and not willing to make a definite decision!.


When we look on things of the heart, only the heart can fully comprehend what we are looking at!. If our heart is hardened to the point of rejection, no amount of seeing will make us believe!. Our hearts must have faith in order to believe that which we may not see, but also that which we do see!. For instant, My heart believes that MA is a genuinely concerned lady, and my head concurs!. I have faith, and I have seen her posts, these make me believe in her kindness!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

People are defined by the results of their own paradigms!. We define them by their actions, their actions spring from their paradigms, the truth may be out to lunch somewhere and not even know the game has started!.

Just because someone cries they may not be sad!.

Just because someone is sad does not mean they cry!.

Look beyond!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

I believe that one can only behold the miracle if there is room in the heart for it, if there is the power to believe and to love in the heart of the beholder!. Your last lines define all of this so beautifully!. This is a fascinating and beautiful poem!. I love it!. Thank you!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

I think you're trying to say something along the lines of, "It's within my sight but I don't want to see," or "It's there, but I don't want it to be there!."
Ignore my bluntness it's a signature quality of mine!.

You have written a poem about something you and many of us question!. We 'naturally', not by spirit, know that Deity is not in the Shrine, an instrument made by hands!. However, His presence we know is boundless!. So, it could be!.!.!. but, it it real or not!? Www@QuestionHome@Com

Faith between people is comparable to religious faith!. It's the persons who matter!. Without faith there is no real love, without love there is coldness and an empty hole!. Let the tears flow!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

It sounds to me like it's about others attempting to define us by their perception of us rather than our actual selves which may or may not be the same!. Is that even close!? Good though!Www@QuestionHome@Com
