INSIGHTFUL POEMS: “The vision box” by Trina Graves


The Vision Box

It was once a small box
But now often fills a wall
As colossal in dimension
As the expansion of it all
Hundreds of channels
Cable, streamed, satellite
Or pop on a DVD
But is it all alright?…

The television was pure magic
When in homes it first appeared
Quickly engaging many nations
It’s presence became revered
No matter what was shown
It was constantly turned on
Unknowing we became besotted
Around it daily we would throng

A monumental shift had begun
Entrancing all to its view
Engrossing more as years passed
With added hours and channels too
Eventually people spoke out
Of damage to minds so young
Not yet appreciating the fact
Age hadn’t protected since it begun

As with cinema, over the decades
The levels of decency fell
Taking more and more to shock
Sex and violence enhanced to sell
As if it wasn’t addictive enough
Soaps were added in plentiful supply
Not really ‘true to life’ at all
High-drama keeps the ratings high

A way to become rich and famous
Catches the impressionable teen
Mainstream media in all its forms
Hearts set, so many, so keen
Living the ‘Celebrity Lifestyle’
Is their one and only goal
Eventually most will learn
It doesn’t fulfil the Soul

But even before those teens
Grab the children and toddlers too
Hypnotize their developing minds
To control their future view
Before six, children cannot differentiate
Truth from fiction, they digest everything
Their sub-conscious is being developed
And shapes what their future will bring

All minds are impressionable
No matter young or old
Be aware that what you view
Will sink in and then mould
Your thoughts, beliefs, desires
Take shape with constant repeat
It’s more than just entertainment
When your glued to your seat

It’s now more important than ever
To have discernment overall
Taking control of the remote
We have the power to cause the fall
Of the Elite who’s manipulation
Coerced the silver screen
Greater in number are now awake
Heralding Love and Light to be seen

There is another vision box
That so many tend to forget
But it’s true power is unlimited
Giving rise to what you get
No need for batteries or electric
Unlimited freeview with no install
Available all day and night
Always present to us all

Imagination is your vision
Created in your mind
With intent and focus
Many joys you will find
With Love and Light intent
Plug into the Universe
Switch on your vision box
Your growth will be diverse

      Glad you liked it Linda. I didn’t used to want to do poems with negative aspects in them, but my hope is to bring more awareness to those who are woken or waking up, and maybe plant some seeds in those still asleep.
      After all, we can’t change things we are not aware of, and we are the ones who will bring the change from darkness to light, as we unite in Oneness of love and peace on Earth.
      God Bless ❤

      1. Totally agree with you Trina,first we need awareness, before we can make changes. We need more Sowers of Light, to plant those seeds! Thank you for your Light that comes through each of your poems! ❤

    2. Very true Linda! But we have the power to change the things which we no longer accept, to choose our own thoughts, to get inspired and nourish our minds, and stop being slaves of consumerism, trends. fads, pop gossip, and violence, and degrading music. We no longer need to open the doors of our homes and our minds. We can all send a strong message by stopping our financial support, and making our choices known. ❤
