Actions speak louder than words
We will all experience betrayal in life
But what is worst?
The betrayal itself we conspire
Or being in denial without our knowledge of it first?
Lack of objectivity?
How can you hold yourself accountable?
With the flaws in self- perception?
What will be the muse that guides you?
What will be the ruse that divides you?
How will you navigate?
Set your compass in the sea?
Where do you fix the North Star?
Set the course in our humanity?
I’ve contemplated my behavior
Always wanting to be on the right side of my wrongs
But this focus will also shed
Much of the error within others and where it belongs
We can only control what is in our power
We must forgive others the folly of their deceit
Exoneration is not for the sole sake of relieving guilt
But for the sake of the soul we do not want to deplete
(My reason to forgive)
My faith is tested
But not by the Holy One
My brothers and sisters of humanity
Are what motivates me to shun
I’ve battled deceit
All my life
Especially the lies of my own creation
It’s hard to walk a straight line honestly
With our values compromised by temptation
WikiPsalm #Sixty One
Perseverance and commitment
A trusted path to realize a goal
Visualize and be insistent
We reap what we will sow
Good values permeate history
Tested and validated through time
But only we decide
How we will utilize within any paradigm
The cynic will embrace
The events that leave them with distaste
An emotional canvas
Now collecting injustice
No matter how faint
Places a stain on the soul
Of which this will taint
Open your heart
Open your mind
Resist the dogmas
That leaves you unkind
WikiPsalm #Fifty Nine
Be humble not prideful
If you sever your attachments you sever the pain
If we cling to an injury of the past
We shall suffer this affliction once again
Cast away old fixations
Strive to learn from them and move on
Don’t be a prisoner of your making
Don’t adhere to this con
WikiPsalm #Fifty Eight
It’s not about being right
We are not the authorities of moral high ground
What matters is our actions
I claim this argument sound
The discovery of ego
Elude many it will
Distract and misguide us
The ego is a shill
The ethics in human behavior
Does not represent
Justice for the masses
In ignorance we consent
