Righteousness


For a child
Playing with dolls
Is righteous

For an adult
Pursuing his vocation
Is righteous

For people
In the mundane level
Seeking material wealth
Is righteous

For persons
Who tread the path
Of spirituality
Sacrificing material wealth
Is righteous

For each one
From their level
Moving on to the next level
Is righteousness.

    Beautiful poem defining righteousness. Problems occur when righteous for one is harmful to others. Thank you for a nice poem. (Report) Reply

    That's why we say that one man's right can be another man's wrong! This conflict of values is beautifully brought out in the poem! (Report) Reply

    Well and succinctly put! Lie morality, righteousness is also subjective, We can call it 'righteous relativism'! ! (Report) Reply
