_                       The big sign
                       which was made
                       to get our own
                    individual attention
                     is calling. It is
                       trying to show
                      us the way, but
   we refuse to follow where it leads. The journey is
  within us. A battle of morals. How, then, can we
   refuse to follow? Search for what makes things
    fair or unfair. Does not every person understand
                       what is fair
                    versus what isn't?
                      Good = fair
                     Bad = unfair
                    Sometimes greed
                  (pride) causes us
                     to be unfair
                    to others. Why
                     would we do
                   so knowingly?
                   The only way
                  to reverse the
                  direction is to
                 go the other
                way! Look for
               the Way and
                you will find
                 it. Choose for
                your personal
               moral, not mine.

    Hi, Nicholas. Yes, like your cross, I suppose "Boatman" is a shape poem...."Where" is a multi-question. Your poem poses the living problem, "Why?" Who can figure? We've been given so many great messages...most of them blindly disregarded. Good write. Keep reminding. Love, Daver
