Exploring Life Has Its Rewards


Anyone can elect to be whomever they wish.
They can do this in campaigns,
Or in a gathering of forums conducted...
To convince others of like minds,
They have positions of influence.
And it is to their advantage to keep this maintained.
In efforts to refrain from facing their hypocrisies.
Hypocrisies contained without them being challenged.

However...
Those selective of thoughts that exist like this,
Are on top of their own priority list to impress self importance.
But in reality this move they have chosen to approve,
Only keeps them restricted to limits they 'assume' benefits.
Yet diminishes an experience to live lives more fulfilled.
To leave others who do adventure to reveal realities,
With wisdom to acknowledge exploring life has its rewards.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
