What Fools

Perhaps, a pseudo-sonnet? 

Listen to poem:
"You shall know the Truth, and the Truth Shall make you free." We wait for what will never happen; the consequences of inaction may overtake at any moment. Vaguely felt suspicions foment, feed uneasiness; words half-formed hang in air, hover just out of reach, didactic, but never really heard -- misunderstood, despised, ignored, or ridiculed...One must not preach! But harken back to days of yore: attend, and hear repeated, as before, and yet once more: "What fools these mortals be!" How perfectly descriptive -- of me!

There is wisdom in your words, Leo. Being human we are not perfect, and though we strive to be strong, yet our characters tend to be frail, especially when cautious of the unseen. #7 // paul
