The Human Pendulum

Why's the "Left" at times viewed as a meddlesome brigand, And, "Golden Rule" seem such a stretch for our race? Is it "Right" to hate most the folks (you haven't met yet), Why's "Fear" such big deal in a world "Blessed by" Grace? Why do some hate the thought ALL deserve a flat playfield? Or quail when a friend fares much better than you? Can't we celebrate smart folks who float all boats higher, And let go of jealousies clouding our view? Can a human who vacillates say they've found answer? Ripe fruit in maturity sways in the wind. And can you save yourself (with soul dying of cancer)? Unless you endorse my dreams, you're no one's friend. Long Tooth April 3, 2018

A very clever write. Questions most of us have asked at one time or another. Sadly everyone does not practice what they preach.. i enjoyed the message in this one. MR
