Common Sense

Cannot find it anywhere, that I look,
One has it when they are born to know.
Many think they have it, from a book.
Many feel, they have it, with such glow.
Only thing that can be lost and never found,
Never to be returned, thoughts are bound.

Sense of commonality, can rule the world.
Examples surround us every day, unfurled.
Now that you think, you have not lost it.
Send this to a friend, who has not one bit.
Each day, it is gone, true revelations sit.

    You are so right . A lot of common sense has been lost in the midst of confusing disorder in the world. Congratulations on your win. Love, Joyce

    Reminds me of what Voltaire said once, "Common sense is not common." Congrats on your win! I liked this a lot. =)
