Lessen in Humanity


 A young active mind comes in ,,,, 

Instantly he's seen as disruptive ,,,,,, 

Maybe he has nudged others into awakening,
From their slumber with just a few quotes,,,,

Not much of interest in a loud - mouth , is there ?

Unless you get buried in his eyes, or his quotes.

They stand out a mile, take them in, I most certainly did, 

He held  many truths in many ways of perception in his words.

Some I didn't necessary agree with,  but, I listened anyway. 

Lessons in humility being seeded here I did see...

"Make other people come to you; use bait if necessary"

"Win through your actions, never through argument."

        "Always say less than necessary."

    I can relate to this. Sometimes beng a good listener causes the listener to endure annoying rhetoric. It's a strng persn who can sort out the ramblings of another human being and still be able to appreciate them.

    It's funny how respect for others comes sometimes as a surprise when we just give them a chance. This is a truly beautiful poem and idea. I know more and more why I really like you.

    We all have opinions of others opinions. That sometimes the Devil beguiles with his minions. A two party system will testify true. That to just keep our mouth shut's the best we can do. :) Peace. :):)

    A very catchy title. There are some very intense lines here. "Win through your actions...", agreed. Nicely done!

    "Win through your actions, never through argument." - A sense line and of the truth. - Well written Debbie! - Have a nice day. - oxox / / Anne-Lise :)
