Message in a Bottle

The destruction of the human race
was self inflicted
by those afraid of falling
into the bottomless pit of inferiority.
These meaningless power hungry men
that resorted to bullying and threats
their mouth seemingly
running away with their heads,
and with eyes that reflect
distorted views,
tyrant created
by the human race
the majority of who wander aimlessly
like sheep on life’s freeway.  
So to you that finds this message,
look at yourself without prejudice,
look at others without prejudice
work together as one
work together for each other,
one for all! All for one!

    Beautiful "Message in a Bottle" and hopefully one that will be read and observed by others! "All for one", powerful thoughts to head into the new year with.:) You will be into your summer season now, yes? Tomorrow we're supposed to have a major snow storm, so I'm thinking you're very lucky!! Keep well, love, Mikki
