Man lives with a thirst for reality He quenches with an imagination. Intrigued by the flight of a bumblebee, He’s a leaky vessel of frustration. His conscious mind extends itself beyond conflicts of morality and blind faith. But should His morals suddenly abscond, the human spirit morphs into a wraith. A white lie, half-truth and or omission is tolerated by Man's jaded heart. Love is an emotional addition, with a high, that’s completely off the chart. Susceptible, to anger and mistrust Man is mortal; He needs time to adjust. (Sonnet) Feb. 7, 2019 2019 Poetry Marathon Mile 17 Poetry Contest Sponsored by: Mark Toney

This is so true, and only of the humans: "A white lie, half-truth and or omission is tolerated by Man's jaded heart." Other animals are less inclined to throw out anything but the truth. This is why I think they are ahead in heaven points, Emile.
