for money,and/or winning, forgetting one's soul

for the pain of the world I’d cry but
needed is my
sensibility

to rock a shape of knowledge to the
limits some impose
on others
for their own
short-lived gain
no compassion living in their
thoughts that would give their own spirit life
change their own life by the
easing
of another’s pain

money made
a
means
for the mean making money
making
imitation drugs
selling via internet to
the victims
who’ll die anyway
of cancers
and the parents of
thousands of babies who’ll die anyway
of aids
what does it matter if they die by
imitation drugs
when there’s money to be made
what does it matter
who matters
not them
the dying
money matters

and the lying
live
in black hole lack of recognition
of their own soul
ego take it all

down the spirits fall

I could cry for the children but I’d rather
put my energy
to good use
that of
loving a child
leading not coercing
place safe boundaries
that they feel free
within security
live in truths to live by
that they honour their soul
and never have to sink to ego
to the following of a greed
to live not by self assurance
but by fear
of losing

and the humble are not weak
but grow in strength
and become more gracious
and love
not desiring to take from
but to contribute to building
of
harmony
fairness
comfort
beauty
kindness
healing
liberty
faith
acceptance
much more
and much more
valuable
to the world and community
than
purchase through power

for money,and/or winning, forgetting one's soul
