Good, Better, Best


I think of the ugly side of life
as beauty beyond our comprehension
I think men are who they say they are
as naïve as native women
I'm not comfortable being good
I deserve the best things of life
We are acquitted to good things
So much that we fear to see the best
I choose to be the best
Because I'm as good as the best

The choice we make have a price tag
The choice we refuse to make have consequences

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
