CONTRAST OF TWO EXTREMES


CONTRAST OF TWO EXTREMES
Fear kills initiatives
Hope keeps dreams alive
Fear dim today’s opportunities
Hope illuminates the future
Fear is a foe, hope is a hero
Fear despairs, hope inspires
Confusion comes with fear
Hope comes with conviction certain
What a contrast of two extremes!

Abject initiates greed
Affluence flow unending joy
Abject ignites fear, affluence raises hope
Desperation! Mother of abject
Aspiration! Father of affluence
Abject window of evils
What a contrast of two extremes

Evil born by fear nurtured by abject
It comes quick and painless
Delivering it dividend at a blink
A wind that blows no one any good
Goodness is golden!
Not easy to sow, longer it takes to germinate
Evil repulses, goodness endears
What a contrast of two extremes

Trade fear for hope, affluence for abject
And goodness for evil

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
