Awareness Imposes a Social Contract

With social graces I’ve played the fool

Expecting we are purveyors of the golden rule

Despite my failures in past relations

We hold some people in our hearts

Disregarding our lamentations

The outcome is not contingent

And repeat I would do it again

To give of yourself

I would not have to pretend

After decades of experience

I’ve rendered some conclusions

Without contradiction

Without any delusions

I only speak for myself

And so I say

This works for me

With no dismay

I know I am different

Take ego out of self and you will see

The intrinsic value to share

Sometimes we can overcome reciprocity

Always use reason

Take care guiding the soul

Don’t let surface defects

Detract you from your goal

Awareness imposes a social contract

And with this responsibility

We can heal the scars

We do have opportunity

There is no perfect world

No utopian society

Hard work and sacrifice

Overcome the ignorance and set yourself free
