If, like me and many others, you are trying to make sense of your existence, you may have tried putting some thoughts on paper, if only to review these at a later date. I have done so in the form of verses; several of which I recognise as trivial, most as weak poetically, but all as personally cathartic in some way. In a sense, taken chronologically, they do serve as a form of “ship’s log” of my emotional journey through later life, trying to reconcile conflicting expectations and experiences.
If the verses chime with you in some way, or if you feel the need to challenge what may seem to be unfounded assumptions or prejudice, please feel free to comment. It may help me to make better sense of the world, or at least keep in touch with a wider range of views of those in it.
PS If you have wondered , ‘Why the pen name ‘philobility’? It is a merger of philosophy and probability .
