Offer sight to a blind man and he may refuse the notion,
Preferring to view the world through the lens of his heart;
Limited only by his own goodness and intention.

Or lack of it, as the case may be. :)

‘I don't think we did go blind, I think we are blind. Blind but seeing. Blind people who can see, but do not see.’
- Jose Saramago, Blindness
Naveen Malhotra Dec 2020
One more truth
I have learnt
Everyone is an inspiration to others
Good people inspire goodness
Crooked one crookedness
Terra Levez Nov 2020
Goodness is like a pill
Its the cure to all the suffering


But you choke when you swallow it

God in you

You will
Never find God

Right there
Deeply embedded
A light inside

All the best
Genre: Inspirational
Theme: Awake
During the darkest hour of the day
When I was all alone

I was at peace knowing this
But also there's this restlessness

As if an eye is watching me
Telling to be cautious of what I do

"who's there?" I called
It replied "I'm your consciousness"
Norman Crane Aug 2020
He brought spiders to the schoolyard
      to crush them
He attended Julliard
      to learn Bach's partitas for violin
He pays women to undress for him
      and beats them
Knowing culture is a game
      we play
The boy and the man are the same
      composition
Performed in various ways
      the notes stubbornly remain
What's born cannot be changed
      one musical phrase
Nurture is Nature's

To live is to feel

that you're losing what you get –


but Goodness remains.
Monologue “Slanter, the Evil Tongue”

Collection "Being"
Maria Mitea Aug 2020
Put me under the spell of maur night,
Let me sip from the drinks of celestial gods,
Lighten me on a sky-bed of heavenly stars, When receiving  the offerings of nocturnalight.

Cover my body with holy rays, songs of praise, Adoring dreams dressed in golden sheepskin, Happily grazing on faith’s meadow spreading
The noble fragrance of sweet-bitter laurel.

Let me sleep in nocturnal goodness tonight.
Let me sleep in nocturnal goodness ...
Let me sleep ...
Sleep ...
Sip ...
S ...
Have a sweet sleep baby all your life ...
