A Perspective On Wealth

A Perspective On Wealth

He’s got all the money

He will ever need

But he cannot buy love

And now

That is all he needs

 

And she’s got all the love

She will ever need

But she cannot buy a car

And now

Says that’s all she wants

 

So which of the two

Would you rather be?

And of the two

Who has what they need?

Dark Spots On The Sun

Dark Spots On The Sun

Please look into a mirror

Before reacting otherwise

Before knee-jerking and crying wolf

Check for dark spots in your eyes

 

You claim

Dark spots on the sun

 

My aim

Is not to prove you wrong

 

Only to make sure

Any dark spots you may spy

Are actually on the sun

And not painted on your eyes

It’s All On You

It’s All On You

Why do people not see

The value in truth?

Honesty is Abe Lincoln

Not John Wilkes Booth

Still the lies get the lines

At the media’s ass-kissing booth

While integrity’s gone missing

And the truth gets the boot

Be The Lion

Just stating you will thrive

Is not the same as thriving

 

And saying you will survive

Is not the same as surviving

106 Stairs On A Spiral Staircase

Don’t worry about falling

Down the spiral stairscase

Worry about not trying to climb

Because only from one of its

106 stairs

You’ll find the best you

The best you there is to find - rAveNswAn

Evidence of the Footfalls of Freedom - rAveNswAn

Wrote Evidence of the Footfalls of Freedom and published it in the This Journal Belongs To Jakeb Hoke collection with the novel, Through the Kindness of Ravens.

Evidence of the Footfalls of Freedom was inspired by something I had read in one or more of many books on the Revolutionary War. A commander of the Continental Army had written in their journal how they had looked down at the ground from riding their horse beside the marching army to find many of the soldiery were barefoot and bleeding on the snow.
