Focus and Become

Focus your effort in the wrong place
enter yourself in the wrong kind of race
so shall there be a consequence to face

Continue to make a big deal of things
whining as if you were among kings 
watch all the heartbreak and sorrow it brings

Can you not take your head from the cloud
why do you appear to be so proud 
you think all the people around you have bowed

I hope your arrogance will someday fade
your intolerance will somehow become decayed  
the soul to flourish no longer delayed

    Words of wisdom that could apply to some folks I know, Virginia. Truly a great entry for the contest. I think Joe will love this one as much as I do. You seem to have a lot of insight into human behavior. Love, Carolyn
