Beware the Men


Beware the men, who wish to create a world
Whilst the world has already been created
Beware the men who wish to perfect creation
And relate that which is truly unrelated
Beware the men, who wish to paint your dreams
Whilst their visions are quite unlike your own
Beware the men, who wish to control all things
For it is into a prison cell, they put you; for their throne

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Warnings to my sons and daughter; for all ideologies and 'isms' of man, are designed for naught but power and subjugation over his fellow man; and to rob others of individual thought and effective reasoning. Vigilence is the only tool against man's desires to rule, for although it is within his heart to be as gods; history has witnesses over and over, that he woefully incapable of siting upon Olympus. Thank God for his wisdom of making our lives short and mortal, for those who value it, make use of this precious gift; and those who squander and degrade it, shall be limited in his graft and greed. As the ancient wisdom shows proof, where ones heart is, there lies his treasure, beware those who have none and must plunder. Yet, those who plunder, shall never be fulfilled; those who treasure, his riches can never truly be taken.
