Mistakes, Sins, and Other Lies
Where be the truths of all life’s ventures?
Through all the years in trespassing history
Are the arcane mutterings of fools and geniuses…
It is we who must find the true and false meanings
Of the lives we are living, the awkward moves we make,
The effects of the words we say and the steps we take…
It is we who are the final arbiters of our living.
It is we who determine the good and the bad moves we make,
The decisions, good and bad, that determine our ultimate fates.
We read our Bible and books of ‘Ancient philosophers’.
We study in classrooms, listen to teachers, respected professors
Whom we expect to know the answers to all our questions or
Will refer us to others who might possess knowledge we want.
We choose our paths to wander and discover, only to question
Our wisdom of the choice. So many will find satisfaction with
The direction they’ve taken and will stay the course to success
And a chosen career that makes them happy, feeling they have
Arrived at their special place of comfort and success.
Others who have not the positive experiences, those who wander in
And out of choices because of low mental acuity and/or a lack of
Ambition, curiosity, and drive…it is from this aggregate that most of
Society’s problems arise, not to say problems do not come from the
Former…or, from our elite group of Politicians, all seemingly coming
From the field of Law and order, the Military – and, a few those from
The business ranks find politics to their liking. For the most part, this
Latter group does wish to perform their duties honestly for the good of
Their particular constituencies and/or for noble reasons.
Then, there is Joe Biden!
Consider him, unwise and wobbly.
Then, there is EYE!
A ‘Romantic’ all my life – a member of a group who should ‘rule the world’… Or, NOT!
