Our Labor of Learning

Our Labor of Learning …

















Salubrious minds of moral servitude,
grasp life with tentative measure,
a feared of wrong and recompense in pay,
the spite of a wrathful God obey,
yet we are so bound by paradigms of enclosure,
tightly adhering to words long laid,
we forget the purpose of life in learning,
and serve ourselves in our spiritual parade.

Life itself affords no paradigms of living,
simply a balance within nature’s ploy,
and while we deliberate the morality of deeds and folly,
life in disregard and by example employs,
the steps of right movement, the decisions of care,
that adhere to the positive and compassion to bare,
are all we can accomplish as we journey this life,
is to find reason enough in loves warm delight.

We are the potential of extremes, in darkness and light,
and in our learning explore their realities,
and in caring for all life,
we discover our connection and relate what we know,
to all living things our diversity shown,
and in life we learn control, from our mistakes,
and eventually, regardless of morality,
we choose to live for each other and simply relate.

    And what better than “to find reason enough in love’s warm delight”? I believe life was meant to be full of love for each other and to relate in positive ways. What good does bickering and banter do but make love and freedom fade? Such a wonderful insight you give your readers to life, Tony. Thank you.

    So pleased you relate and enjoy my thoughts Phyllis, thanks you for your kindness. Cheers!

    Yes I agree with Phyllis. For without love in our hearts, we are mortals lost and misguided. We must abide in love, keep it abundantly and unconditionally share it with our fellow man. Love is required by all of us, without it we perish. Like mothers milk it’s the nutrition for our heart and soul.

    Agree, our one lifeline to survival, for without love we shall all perish. Glad you related with my thoughts Vincent and always appreciate your comments and support. Cheers my friend.
