Right or Wrong

Can waves of living hatred ever calm
as man persists in causing mankind harm
and wars all fought to seek desire for peace
in order to ensure that all wars cease.
Cannot all see that no war can be won
and serve the needs of all with its outcome
for right and wrong are joined in history
depending on which side one tends to be.

No answer either in diplomacy
for right is only where you choose to be.

Ivor G Davies

    Perhaps not, but if you are honest with yourself and with the world, would right not influence your choice of where to be?

    Right would influence your choice, but that's the point. A Tiger kills a deer, what is right for the Tiger is to eat and for the Deer to deny him his meal. When poverty forces a man to steal to keep his family alive would he be wrong not to feed his family and let them die? Is it right to put him in prison and let his family starve? "for right and only where you choose to be"

    As you say, we have choice. I think war is caused by someone wanting what the other guy has and they decide to take it by force. For sure the outcome is always devastating. Such insight here.
