Worthwhile life …
Tis a lowly thought,
to let rage form a hatred,
to let hurt smother compassion,
or let malevolence quash understanding,
yet we all suffer the consequences
of our actions,
from thwart endeavours or wants.
Minds do waver
between darkness and light,
so adaptable to be as dangerous as kind,
in this our husk of human flesh,
caught between heaven and hell, attesting
we have tickets to both,
and use them, often.
Potential is the word
that much describes our fate,
yet is it too late, our very fate,
to wallow between, exploring both love and hate,
until we become our innate nature,
our propensities set,
at birth or before.
We are chameleons,
manipulators and frauds,
like children discovering scope,
and bending rules till there’s none left of hope,
to exact our selfish wants,
so I just hope we can find love and compassion
before the end, for our souls to extend
to a worthwhile life.
