Breaking-Point

Howdy folks! 

Everyone has a breaking point with varying degrees of threshold levels among us. 

Some have a very low threshold of tolerance and patience and with these people, if they're a part of our lives, walking on eggshells around them is often how we deal with them or we try to avoid them whenever possible. We have a greater tendency to try to please them because we don't want to deal with them when they're displeased. We hope to avoid a combative confrontation.

Some have a high threshold of tolerance and have a lot of patience. These people we can easily take advantage of and not necessarily realise we are, until that is, they reach their breaking point and usually, a person with a high threshold learns how to hold inside themselves a number of things they've tolerated, put up with, until they reach their breaking point. Then watch out because all they've kept pent up, they will likely unleash and show their accumulated frustration all at once.

People with a low threshold, we expect frequent adverse and angry reactions from. But, people with a high threshold, we suddenly are taken aback when they react to us adversely and then, we think they've gone off the deep end, when really they've simply reached their breaking point.

I think the best to try and cultivate for ourselves is the 'middle ground' and try not to expect someone else to accept/put up with something we wouldn't likewise accept or tolerate ourselves. We should cultivate tolerance and patience but not to the point where we don't establish boundaries for ourselves, thus letting others walk all over us as a result. ..And the Golden Rule we should always apply.

With every struggle in life, there's a cost to one's supply
Of their strength, courage, and hope needed to apply.
The cost will depend upon each struggle's intensity
And the number of to face throughout life's history.

When there are few in number, of a lesser count,
Or aren't very difficult to rise above, surmount,
Those who struggle less say, want it understood,
Life is not so bad, but is wonderful and good.

It's easy to stay positive when there's less to face;
When instead of mountains, there are hills in place.
When one's road is less difficult, it's easy for them
To, those on a tougher journey, be critical of, condemn.

When there are many struggles and/or are hard to bear,
Those afflicted with grow weary from the wear and tear.
Over time the wear is costly since it's accumulative,
Until eventually the toll can reduce one's will to live.

When weariness reaches its limits very near 
And the person has to face; another mountain, clear,
If their strength, their courage, and their hope is thin,
Another stressful situation can/will then do them in.

Everyone has a limit as to how much they can take;
Some more than others before they will break.
Those who can take a lot are often then expected
To handle anything thrown at, onto them projected.

One with a higher tolerance level often gets used
Until they say, "Enough" and then will be abused
Because there are some who, advantage, take
And care not or think of, for another's sake.

We shouldn't expect of others what we wouldn't do;
Anything we would not accept and would object to.
When we expect of others that to, we would object,
We feed our selfish ego which on us then will reflect.

Sometimes though, in life we do have to ask
Because we need another to do for us a task.
If this be the case, for reasons too numerous to say,
Appreciation and gratefulness we must too relay.

Therefore, before others we ask of or expect,
We must be thoughtful of and must show respect;
Realise they have a Breaking Point as we, ourselves, do;
We can't just assume for us they can always come through.

We must keep in mind since we can't ever really know
How much one is dealing with but chooses not to show.
Nor do we know their burdens, how great their weight,
When we dump on others expecting them to tolerate.

In life it's said, the more we rise above and get through,
The stronger we will be and this may well be true,
But there's still a Breaking Point, which beyond we cannot go
And even among the strongest, there's still a call for "No".

Anyone-Can

Howdy folks! 

"Anyones number many, are present everywhere;
Exceptions number few and to find, are indeed, rare."
~ Artsieladie Quote  

"When we settle for being an anyone, we forfeit our unique
And we allow at best mediocrity to, for us then speak."

When one's ego is in charge, controlling their free will."

Anyone Can steal; Anyone Can lie;
Anyone Can cheat and then deny.
Anyone Can be resentful and bitter,
Give up easily and be then, a quitter.

Anyone Can allow themselves to hate;
Feed into their ego and perpetuate.
Anyone Can serve only their own selfish gain;
Be greedy for possessions to hoard as they obtain.

Anyone Can be thoughtless, hurtful, and crude;
Inconsiderate, obnoxious, spiteful, and rude.
Anyone Can be phony, fake, and superficial;
Project a version of themselves that's artificial.

Anyone Can bully, be mean and ostracise,
Judge others unfairly and always criticise.
Anyone Can hold grudges, be unforgiving;
Be irresponsible in the life they are living.

Anyone Can be arrogant and demanding,
Without empathy or any understanding.
Anyone Can treat others with contempt,
While from the same, feel they are exempt.

Anyone Can encroach upon another's life,
Create havoc, cause undue stress and strife.
Anyone Can violate laws and crimes commit
Just because they reason to and so, see fit.

Anyone Can, through their life, breeze,
And not give a damn, live as they please,
Without any regards for others to care;
Take, take, take and never give or share.

Anyone Can talk a good talk and promises make,
That with a grain of salt only others should take.
Anyone Can against others commit wrong,
Then refuse blame that with them does belong.

Anyone Can do easy; do only what's desired
Where no self restraint or effort is required.
Anyone Can give in to all of life's temptations,
Then make excuses for their character's limitations.

There are so many things that Anyone Can do,
Requiring no quality characteristics for one to pursue.
'Anyones' settle for their least and for being weak;
Settle for being common and forfeit their unique.

To be an 'anyone' it takes no special skill;
No courage whatsoever to follow ego's will.
'Anyones' say and do whatever comes to mind;
Have no self control, care not if they're unkind.

'Anyones' are a dime a dozen and are seen everywhere,
While exceptional 'exceptions' are indeed so rare.
The world of 'anyones' is vast; densely populated
With those who think 'exceptions' are highly overrated.

Anyone Can be an 'anyone', blend into today's crowd,
Where they are justified; where egos are so proud;
Where self promotion thrives, modesty does not;
Where society, morals and honesty, no more has got. 

Anyone Can be an 'anyone', the easiest route to take,
Where good character doesn't exist to ever be at stake.
But without good character, self worth is non-existent,
As is self discipline to, bad behaviours, be resistant.

'Exceptions' are the exception; 'anyones' are the rule,
With the 'anyones' believing they are each a jewel.
Anyone Can be an 'anyone' to fit into today's norm,
But to be an 'exception' requires much character reform.

Anyone Can be an 'anyone' but an 'exception' cannot be,
Unless they change course, cultivating traits of integrity.
Herein lies the problem since tremendous effort is required.
To be an 'exception', the change to, must foremost be desired.

Anyone Can be an 'anyone'. It's the easiest way to be.
Hence, the plentiness of 'anyones' makes up a giant sea.
So, if we choose to be an 'anyone', there is nothing else to say,
While being an 'exception', speaks volumes words cannot portray.

Profit-Pie

Howdy folks! 

It's all one vicious cycle and we, the people, are footing the bill both in our wallets and with our health. Cancer is a BILLION DOLLAR INDUSTRY and so are all the other big and prominent diseases, like diabetes. There's no interest really in "prevention" of the diseases because if the diseases were to be eradicated, it would then be bye-bye to all the huge profits being made from treating the symptoms of them. Elementary! 

The FDA is 'supposed to be' in place to PROTECT the people and our welfare, our health. What a crock! It's under big pharma's control. So, the FDA cannot serve the best interests of the people AND the best interests of big pharma too. Simple logic! It's like having the fox in charge of the hen house.

If our government really cared about the people, there would be in place laws and enforced ordering all the crap (chemicals and chemically processed additives, artificial junk, like preservatives, sweeteners, flavours, colours, etc.. the list is long) be removed from our food, water, and environment and all GMOs would be banned. But our government won't EVER do this because big business and wealthy corporations run this country and 'who' has control of these? The wealthy 1% elitists who are covertly plotting/planning a NWO agenda (New World Order), which is to take over and control the ENTIRE world. NOT good!

But the vast majority of peoples (note: plural) are still in the dark: sleeping, ignoring, indifferent, etc.. It's really so ridiculous it isn't funny that 1% can control the 99% but it's because the 99% can't get it together and mostly because people cater to and focus on petty differences. But, 'divide and conquer' is the elitist plan and it's working because the 99% aren't uniting against them.

But back to the topic... Not only does big pharma benefit from a continued practice of keeping people sick, but so does the medical field; so does the weight loss industry; so do all the insurance companies, therefore lots of attorneys on both sides of the equation AND we can be sure our elected politicians are being well compensated also. They are all just a bunch of glorified thugs and thieves! It's really so sickening, despicable, wicked... just way beyond words or comprehension.


"Eradicate the causes; then watch what disappears;
Symptoms and the profits made by all the racketeers.
When there are no symptoms available to treat,
All the profits made from will crash into defeat."

"The causes of disease won't be eradicated,
Because the profits from treating symptoms
Would then be completely eliminated!"
~ Artsieladie Quotes 

"Profit Pie"
(image pending)

Keep the people sick. Keep the people ill
For profit's being made from each and every pill.
The more pills we take; the more pills we need,
The more we help Big Pharma to satisfy their greed.
Causes of disease must be kept in place
So treating of the symptoms can keep their profit base.
While Big Pharma benefits, their profits growing yearly,
With our health and money, we pay the cost severely.

Our food laced with chemicals, artificial, processed crap,
Genetically modified junk, sets the disease begetting trap.
With tons of sugar added and loads and loads of salt,
Ingredients known as harmful, insuring disease by default.
As long as we, the people, are with ailments and disease,
Our money can be taken for their profit gains, with ease.

The food industry sets the stage, the bakers of the pie,
Invites in other fingers, none of which are shy.
Their recipe is simple, made of our blood and sweat.
As we struggle to survive, they steal all that they can get.
As we're slowly cooked, we're bled until we're dry.
When our pockets are all empty, they care not if we die.

Yes, we, the people, are finger licking good,
'Cause without us, the greedy have no profit livelihood!
Still, the tasty, main ingredient of this, the Profit Pie,
Is not we, the people, but the money we supply.
Oh, the pie's delicious, delectable and sweet,
With the greedy gorging on the profits by deceit.

Beneficiaries are awarded with the rolling of the dice,
With Big Pharma and the lawyers winning each the biggest slice.
The weight loss industry is in, lapping up its share of gravy
From the pie, a sea of profits with no patrolling Navy.
The medical field has a chunk, not too shabby is its size
With the charges by the doctors ever increasing, on the rise.

Our FDA, the referee, is under fox patrol.
How safe are the people when Big Pharma has control?
Health insurance companies now have the upper hand,
Since we've been forced to buy through an executive demand.
Which brings up to mention our politicians' roles.
Though they won't admit it, they're on one or more doles.
Oh, the elitists' Profit Pie serves mighty well, their greed,
Their hearts with no conscience, who, on innocent people, feed.

"When lust for money takes precedence and thrives;
Humanity regresses when money's valued more than lives."

Gifted-By-God

Howdy folks! 

"An attitude of gratitude within maintains a happy life
That from us can't be stolen in times of stress and strife."
~ Artsieladie Quote 

"Gifted By God"
(image pending)

I am just a nobody with no fortune and no fame,
But rich in ways many others wouldn't ever think to claim.
Among His many blessings, I'm blessed with a Gift to create,
To share with and touch others, to uplift and educate.

But to be creative, to feel others' woes, address,
God gave me a life of lessons so I could share, express.
He knew I'd need material so I could carry out
My purpose He designed without a shred of doubt.

So, with my poetry, unique and a style all its own,
I write from within, a place no one can ever clone.
To acquire understanding in a way that's surreal,
One must live and experience to know how others feel.

Starting with my childhood, learning the cruelties of life
And throughout adulthood, enduring much pain and strife,
I've gained a wealth of knowledge about wrong and right,
Bringing forth perspicacity in rhyme as I write.

If with my poetry, one's expecting more in line with norm,
One might be disappointed with its content and its form,
For I do not write what and how others think I should,
But mostly to convey a message, hoping that it's good.

I only write in rhyme to give my words a flow;
Free verse seems lacking of, my opinion, though.
I like the added challenge throughout my writing time
Of writing words with meaning AND portrayed with rhyme.

My writing is direct, though not always pleasant, nice;
Some may think too lengthy, therefore not concise.
But truth and honesty can sometimes be harsh and severe
And the delivery of, must be covered and as well, clear.

Meeting challenges in life has played a main, central part,
Leaving many battle scars upon my, at times, weary heart.
But through it all I've learned, we become better though,
From overcoming challenges which we learn from and grow.

When I say I am blessed in ways others wouldn't claim,
It's because among my blessings, the atrocities I name.
Living through atrocities forges a greater understanding,
More inclined to be forgiving, less critical, reprimanding.

Many reasons I have had too numerous to be counted
To remain bitter and resentful, not overcome, surmounted;
To justify holding onto grudges and be unforgiving,
But a heart so heavy burdened can't rejoice in living.

I've had many chances in life to provide me with excuses
To accept in my heart hatred because of multiple abuses,
But from a young age I've been determined to rise above
By cultivating instead the opposite, the Elements of Love.

Oftentimes, when with our life, we're dissatisfied,
We give in and accept that our misery's justified.
But just one adjustment, a change to/in our objective,
Can make all the difference when we alter our perspective.

When we understand why there are struggles in our life,
All with silver linings in spite of stress and strife,
We afford ourselves the ability to negate the negative,
Transform it into positive to be wiser how we live.

Not only wiser but more humble with our ego more subdued
To be more considerate of others, instead of callous, rude.
We're all a work in progress with each our own path to carve;
Who we are, become, depends upon what we feed or starve.

We all make mistakes and they're our best learning tools.
Those who acknowledge this become the wiser versus fools.
We all have attributes to help make the world a better place,
But if we do not bring them forth, we, ourselves, disgrace.

I am creative too as an artist with paint, pencil, brush,
But this creative field brings a different type of rush.
There is beauty all around us God has so richly painted,
That even the world's ugliness can't ruin, make tainted.

Since with animals and nature I've always felt at peace,
Accepted in His world of wonder, God's Masterpiece,
Through my art I try to capture the beauty I still see,
Hoping to remind others of the wonders God made to be.

Being blessed by God with the Gift of Creativity,
My gratitude's immense; I cherish most reverently.
Being given such a Gift by the Master of Creation,
All praise goes to Him with my absolute adoration.

Rose-Of-Love

Howdy folks! 

"With others' hearts, careful be,
For hidden pain we cannot see."

In every heart there lives a rose amidst the prickly thorns,
Regardless of the daunting thicket guarding as it warns.
To the easily discouraged, those who won't the time, spare,
The rose remains obscure, non-existent, hidden there.

But to those who know beauty isn't always in plain sight,
They will take the time to look instead of taking flight.
When within a heart's discovered the beauty of the rose,
The thorns become softened as the rose, it larger grows.

Do not be mislead by thorns designed to disguise,
But seek the rose within a heart, where the beauty lies.
Focus on the beauty, encourage and cultivate,
Help one to grow their Rose Of Love instead of thorns of hate.

Plastic-Words

Howdy folks! 

Words are empty vessels, until there is demonstrated,
Supporting actions carried out to make them validated.
~ Artsieladie Quote 

"Plastic Words"

Words are just words, nothing more or less,
Regardless of what they say or attempt to address.
Words can be beautiful, delectable and sweet,
But with no supporting actions, are left obsolete.

Words can deliver a message to seem sincere,
Or paint a picture to make things appear
Like they are from the heart sent,
Like they are true, like they are meant.

But words are tools used well by deceivers,
To con the unsuspecting into believers.
Plastic Words are like plastic flowers,
As void of value as are dry showers.

But if they're said, from the heart truly sent,
They are then with meaning and with true intent.
Never put much stock into mere words until
The ones who spew them, act on them, fulfill.

Otherwise, take words with just a grain of salt.
Expect most of them to be empty by default.
But should you come upon one who follows through,
Such a soul is a keeper and one who's truly true.

Love-Pain

Howdy folks! 

"The deeper we are hurt, the deeper the Love we bear,
For hurt cannot go deeper than how much we Love and care."
~ Artsieladie Quote 

"Love Pain"
Poem/art by Artsieladie
Full Size PNG:
https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-OTbJDTmCTJI/WYcB7DgzCvI/AAAAAAAAIE0/R49ibYk5Z90zQL6TUuFspIfNvlCoGon9wCKgBGAs/s792/LovePainByArtsieladie2015-03-21_8.5x11_72res.png

The way to honestly learn how deep one's Love is and true,
Is when you hurt them, how affected they are by you.

Love that lives on or near the surface is easily wiped away,
Dismissed and soon forgotten, without feelings to linger, stay.
But Love that's true runs deeply with feelings strong, surreal
And when deeply in the heart one's hurt, it's difficult to heal.

So, if you hurt someone and they aren't very much affected,
Then they never really Loved you as they have to you projected.
But if you hurt someone and they're deeply devastated,
Then you know their Love is real and to be appreciated. 

If one Loves deeply, their Love will be stronger than the pain
That's been inflicted on them and will stand much to gain
If is set aside one's ego and its stubborn pride, 
Allow Love to work its magic and over them preside.

It is unfortunate that to learn if Love is true and real,
Hurt must be involved to know how deeply we feel.
To learn its depth and strength, Love must be tested,
Love's Magic only works when both hearts are invested.

Keeping-Up-Appearances

Howdy folks! 

Keeping up appearances, regardless of how fake,
Is the way of many, the path they choose to take.

Keeping Up Appearances takes precedence these days.
It's all about how we look in the various visual ways.
Our clothes must be fashionable, our hair must always shine,
Our body must be perfect, our face look young and fine.
So we work and work for the cost of this charade.
Though we are so stressed, the expense must be paid.

While who we are within, it seems we have forgot,
For how we appear's important, yet within, matters not.
Inside we can be rotten, selfish to the core;
As long as we're looking good, 'cause nothing matters more.
Modesty, former classiness, now has aside been flung
For sexual promiscuity and a wagging, toilet tongue.

Technology is keeping up with appearances' demand
With selfie taking phones attached to every hand.
The competition's fierce on the crowded stage,
Where breeds narcissism, spitefulness, and rage.

Being public is what's in, while privacy is out.
It's tell and show the world all, barring any doubt.
Everyone is public and so is everything,
All except humility as we, to our egos, cling.

All this showing off with our egos on parade,
We're too high on self to see, the outcome of our trade.
As Keeping Up Appearances keeps taking precedence,
Human values keep eroding along with common sense.
If Keeping Up Appearances remains the center of our attention,
Humanity will pay the cost with no values left to mention.

💗 Have a blessed day! 💗

Sincerity-Clarity

Howdy folks! 

Talk is cheap, most that we hear;
Only actions make words sincere.
~ Artsieladie Quote

There is no better way to learn how much people truly care
Than when you find yourself in need of help or in deep despair.
Many people 'seem' to be sincere and honest as they appear,
But when you really need them things become so crystal clear.

These are the times we should pay close attention to,
Because THIS is how we learn who is and isn't true.
Those who 'stand by us' and 'show to us' they care,
They are the treasures in our life; few in number, rare.

All the rest we can know for sure won't likely ever be,
Anyone we can depend upon, a reality we must see.
Those who stand beside us deserve from us the same
Returned back to them without needing to ask for, claim.

Throughout our lives there are many who will 'say' they care,
But they speak with empty words, meaningless and bare,
If they never back them up, never follow through.
Take them with a grain of salt; trust them, never do.

Most will say anything to make themselves appear
Like they're good and caring people and most sincere.
But underneath, inside, they hope they won't be tested,
Because they know of themselves they are not invested.

Those who truly Love us and care will show to us they do,
Their words may be few but their actions will show through.
It's a person's actions that speak mostly for their heart;
Is how we separate the true ones from the ones not, apart.

A person's word is only as good as what their actions 'say';
Regardless of what they speak, the truth's in their display.
We can spare ourselves some grief if we keep ourselves aware
There are those among us who just pretend to about us, care.

💗 Have a blessed day! 💗

Beware-Of-The-Sheep

Howdy folks! 

Beware of those who among us walk,
Dressed as sheep, but double talk.
~ Artsieladie Quote 

"Beware Of The Sheep"

Beware Of The Sheep who "Baa-a-as" so sweet!
Are there hooves present or paws for feet?
Check the wool, do thoroughly feel,
Polyester, the finest, or is it real?

Examine closely if you're feeling charmed,
For you may be the prey to be disarmed.
Seduction is subtle, cunning, disguised,
And when mastered, it's unrecognised
By the unsuspecting, gentle and caring,
Who aren't looking for a sheep to be wearing
An overcoat of make believe wool
Or the sworn truth which really is bull.

Remember the devil, as you might have guessed,
Doesn't come with horns, so obviously dressed.
No! The devil comes cloaked, "cloaked as a saint",
Under the Umbrella of God's Words to paint
A picture to convince, make you believe,
Masterly done to artistically deceive.

Don't be afraid though to investigate.
Don't ignore intuition or even hesitate
Because inside of you is the Truthful Voice
Of God telling you to make the choice
Of listening to Him, for He does not lie,
And it is He on Who you CAN rely.
Not on one who slyly laces their words
With sweetness, perfumed, but really are turds
Of crap, of bull, of stinking dung,
All spit out from their forked, split tongue.

So if you get a whiff, follow your nose,
Don't dare swallow what they propose.
Avoid them surely like The Plague instead.
Be NOT their prey to be on, fed.
Each human wolf is a treacherous beast,
Hearts and souls are which on, they feast.
There's no more cunning, shrewd, or sly,
Than a wolf as a sheep to fool the eye.

Beware Of The Sheep, posing as a friend.
Closely inspect, whether real or pretend.
Remember too, they travel in packs,
Working together, covering their tracks.
Don't become their filet mignon, juicy steak.
Insist they prove they are real not fake.
If there's nothing they're hiding,
They'll be willing and abiding,
To show themselves as real and true.
Anything less, they're fooling you.

Keep closely in touch with your Inner Voice.
It is God warning you to be careful of your choice.
These wolves may fool 'us', mislead, misguide,
But from the Wrath of God they cannot hide.
Regardless of how these wolves are dressed so well,
They shall reap what they sow in the Fires of Hell.

So, Beware Of The Sheep who "Baa-a-as" so sweet!
You may be instead a potential to eat!
