In a sour cesspool of their own making,



are the most pitiable souls


those full of anger and hate


those who tend to over-rate


all that ugly mess


I must confess


I cannot guess


why anyone


would choose love and kindness less!

silverada, sorry I hadn't seen your comment on January 6th about playing until tonight!!!

Why anyone would choose love and kindness 


less often than hatred and spitefulness 


has been pondered by sages 


 throughout the ages. 


I doubt that we might 


discern the answer tonight.

The answer tonight


is whatever feels right


so I think it'll be when I turn out the light,


night!

Night-light, bright white 


chasing away my fright 


of shadows lurking in the night 


appearing as monsters to my sight.

Appearing as monsters to my sight,


hovering shadows in the night


but I know it'll be alright


if I don't heed erroneous fright .

If I don't heed erroneous fright,


I may discern new insight.


Strength is not only displaying physical might


but also yielding to wisdom of inner light.

Yielding to wisdom of inner light,


makes my heart take flight


fills my soul with delight


erases plight


dissolves any feeling of slight


shines bright in the darkest night.

shines bright in the darkest night.


The body in repose,


the mind goes through the day's woes.

The day's woes


step on toes


of the metaphorical kind


offends the heart


offends the mind


fills with rage, blind.


All combined,


intertwined


a devil designed,


thing inclined


to boggle your progress


leaving you behind


in the human race


in the dust, and in disgrace!

In the dust, and in disgrace,


she rued her finish in last place.


But, she should never be chagrined


of whatever spot she ended in;


instead, she should stand proud and tall


for having started the race at all.
