Mind trembling at the thought of life,
why live if one's to live in strife?
Kagey Sage Nov 2021
Get up off your thinking chair
and ski-doo all your blues away
Drive a cold heart through a snow drift
Realize that the static's too blurry
to rationalize through the fake
So don't look for clues, junior
The facts of life are that sitcoms
are no way to base a future
So all I can do is find breathtaking views
and write words that ought to be listened to
by people kneeling in pews

When a thing is done
as a means to an end
Any meaning that thing
might have had,
Is ended.

Doing the right thing,
for the wrong reasons,
brings much worse calamity & destruction
Then doing a cataclismically wrong thing,
For all the right reasons.

When we do right,
with cruelty & ill intent
Lifetimes are spent
covering it up.
When we do wrong,
with pureness of heart
Lifetimes are given
to making it right.

The 1st is paid for with Blood,
The 2nd with Spirit
And both eventually come due.

The World we are living in today
Is that time...
One person finding a path
for
morals, improvement, humility,
could bring down
the wall of vice, changing
the whimper into a bang

Now It Seems That Moral Codes...
Are Things Most Folks FORGO...
When It Comes To Dough...
And Bedding Them **’s... !!!

Because Moral Tones...
DON'T Go With Folks...
Who’ll... Sell Their Souls...
Just To Be Well Known... !!!

Or Who’ll Spread Their Thighs...
So That They Can Get By...

It’s A TOUGH Old Life...
So Sometimes It’s Alright...
To Do... Wrong For Right...

But Let Me Check That Line...
Because It DOESN'T Seem Right... ?!?

Until You Find Yourself In Binds...
Where Things Are SO TIGHT...
That To Simply SURVIVE...
Has A Price That Is HIGH... !!!

But Like DARK Skies...
There’s Much That Hides...
And Shifts The Tides of Peoples Lives... !!!

So... Morality’s Nice...
When You DON’T Face Strife... !!!

Or A Cheating Wife...
Or A Husband Who LIES...

I Guess Sometimes...
That... Morality DIES...
When People Feel...
That They’ve Got A RAW Deal... !!!

Or Feel The Need To STEAL...
Just To... Get A Meal... !!!

This Life Is So REAL...
That Uneven Keels...
Sometimes... REVEAL...

The Darkest Side...
of Our Human Kind...
And The Kind of Vibes...
That Most DON’T LIKE... !!!

But When You’re Flying HIGH...
And Everything’s ALRIGHT...
It’s... EASY To JUDGE...
And To Tell Someone...

That They’re Doing WRONG...
But... Morality Belongs...
In A Place FAR AWAY...
From This World Today... !!!

Cos' When You Look At Governments...
... Congressmen And Presidents...

Morality In THEM...
Is Something That’s Seen LESS...
Than Greed And Impudence...
As Well As IGNORANCE... !!!

... IMMORAL Practices...
Run In Them And Their Friends...
Just Like The POOR Systems...
That They're Quick To Defend...
... Within Their Arguments...

Their Morals Lack Good Sense...
And Have NO Code of STRENGTH... !!!

Much Like Their Regiments...
Who They Use To Spread DEATH... !!!

That Historically Has Left...
INJUSTICE And SADNESS... !!!!!!

And When You Really Take Time...
To Look Back And Think...
Humans Have Designed...
Some... HORRIFIC Things... !!!

From Ideals of RACISTS...
To Chains With Links...
That Are Clearly SEXIST...

So Can We Claim To Be MORAL... ?
Or Are We Just... IMMORAL... ?

A Question That Demands...
MORE Than A MORAL STANCE...
When We Look At Our Past... !!!

And Where Our Futures Seem...
To Now Be Heading SWIFTLY... !!!

Cos’ All These New Technologies...
To Me... DON'T FEED MORALITY... !!!

They Seem To Be Employing...
Methods Now DESTROYING...

What We Call... HUMANITY...

Or Maybe It’s Just Me...
Looking A Bit TOO DEEP... ?

But That’s Because I KNOW...
How Life Can... REALLY GO... !!!!!!

When Things Get HARD At Home...
And Make You Search Your Soul...
Because of What Is SHOWN...

When Fathers Cannot Cope...
And Mothers End Up BROKE...
In Ways Most Folks...
Will... NEVER Know... !!!

This Life Has MANY Roads......
Good, BAD And Those In Zones...

That Sometimes Are SO COLD...
That It’s... EASY To FORGO...

What Many Would Call...

.... “ The Moral Code “....
When hit comes to what were apparently moral values, they seem to be being thrown to wayside with reckless abandon these days !
low
standing in values,
standing in meaning,
implications of others,
a sense of loss.

Moral theory being lived in actions,
the end of void
is a arm's length away, got
me believing, that Heaven is meant
for all of us.

I believe there’s good things,
I believe in breathtaking moments,
I believe in the times
where the stars look just right,
I believe there’s good in people,
Even if the bad stands out,

I believe there’s bad things,
I believe in nights
where it’s a little too dark,
I believe there’s times where
You believe you are playing chess
With life, and suddenly,
there’s no one playing with you,
And check mate seems to be 2 moves away

I believe that with happiness, comes sadness.
I believe that with rage, comes peace.
I believe that with lies, comes the truth.

I sit here with a moving clock
to my left waiting to be stopped,
waiting for life to sit down,
and finish what it started.

I believe in Good and bad,
I believe there’s a beginning,
But I’m scared there’s no end.

How is it that I should learn from others?

Shall I observe a drunk man
stumble across the street
and say,
"This is a poor man,
whose inner-self is in such turmoil
that he must nullify it with alcohol.
Somewhere, he has chosen wrongly in life
and may I not retrace the errors
that have produced such wrong"?

Or shall I point at a beggar and say,
"This is a poor man,
whose condition is so outwardly wretched,
even God seems to cast him away in disgust.
Somewhere, he has chosen wrongly in life
and may I not retrace the errors
that have produced such wrong"?

Although, such retrospective thoughts come with some truth,
it is also accompanied with great vulgarity.
Who is unworthy of love?
Thus, who can be deprived the chance for change?
We all must fail in at least one thing,
why persecute those with courage to live through failure?

The lesson learned from such men
is not in the now.
It is in the past,
which bears realities which none can alter,
and in the future,
of which any can change.
Is there a man more
admirable,
worthy of love,
than he who overcomes his past?

Are you aware of the pasts of those around?
And yet how quickly we can judge.
How many times have we dismissed someone
on the cusp of something great?
We are all worthy of love,
who are we to spend it sparingly?

To the drunk,
I bid him good cheer and good luck,
and to the beggar,
I will buy him bread.
These men are capable of great change.
