Treasure Island

LaSoaphia QuXazs

(1934 / Budapest, Hungary, living in the USA)

The meek shall inherit the Earth.


It was said long time ago,
The meek shall inherit the Earth in time as they go,
I say it happens only when they became aggressive,
Became strong, wise & never timid, just fairly persuasive.

It is not easy for a timid one to stand up & become strong,
Eventually life will teach them to correct all wrong.
Then they inherit the Earth and will stand up straight,
Nobody will push them down anymore, after that they never vegetate.

If someone is meek others want to punch them down or humiliate,
Boss them around or help them too much, making them weaker instead educate,
They have same right as anybody else in the universe,
When they find self confidence, they'll be able to reverse.

    You are absolutely right.
    In company of wolves you don't stand a chance being a lamb.
    Even God will be ashame of him.
    He wants you to stand up for yourself and earn his respect.
    Still being meek does not mean being a coward.
    It means understanding others.

    By the way I was born in 1937. 1964 was the year I calendar and settled in London.

    As to being a philosopher, well I do not know much of philosophy.

    I write seriously from intuitions I receive in my meditation..

    I thank you very much. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
