If you take out Identity Politics

If you take out identity politics

From the Democratic Party of the USA

What doctrines are you left with?

What policies are left that will stay?

Not Critical Race Theory

Not project 1619

Not systemic racism

There is no other policy that can be seen

If you can’t win an argument

Historians will rewrite our history

Turn us against each other

It is only this chaos they want you to see

A party is morally bankrupt

The flawed reasoning of deep decay

How many are willing to ask questions?

It is really not for me to say

Beware the voices in media

Where biased opinion is sold

Up for the highest bidder

Little truth will be told

The youth who adopt this philosophy

Taught by our corrupted teachers of today

Are seduced by the same tribalism

That is leading them all astray

Understanding this equation

W. Somerset Maugham’s Larry Darrell – The Razor’s Edge

Steven Spielberg’s Saving Private Ryan

Two characters, two world wars

Changed their lives forever in the face of dyin’

The awakening of human spirit

We are beings of frequency ready to receive

We are also responsible and capable

For what we shall perceive

Be you on a pilgrimage of ignorance

Or on a pilgrimage of awakening

We calibrate our receptivity

We calibrate our enabling

Opportunities are yours

For those capable to see

Understanding this equation

Is a fundamental key

Intend to become Professed

A life with the good and the bad

Forgive that which is broken

We must take all into account

Censure that which is unspoken

Awaken from your slumber

Another day is here

Get on with the work

There is nothing to fear

Learn to take control

Choose that which is best

Do not repeat the past

If indeed you want to attest

Break from the prison

From which you are in

Don’t relive the life gone by

The intellectual shackles from where you’ve been

The struggle is real

Learn from your unrest

Deliver yourself from disinterest

Intend to become professed

Did you live up to the Forecast?

Writing down my thoughts

I Journal them in code

Keeping secrets to myself

watching this mind erode

In courage and sincerity

It doesn’t always turn out right

When approaching a truthful account

We sometimes cower in its sight

Yet we must come to terms

With the failures from our past

Whether we confront them head-on now

Or whether we allow them to fester and last

What we tend to follow

Is what we tend to believe

How we write it down

Relies on what we preconceive

Consider reading your journal

From twenty years ago

How do you fare?

Did you eat crow?

Memory and cognitive dissonance

Shows written word as evident

Have you ever really changed?

Is this why you are so petulant?

Finding out about yourself

From another self of the past

Isn’t really a bad thing

Did you live up to the forecast?

DCG

If and when one learns

It pains me to say

I struggle with my family

All those years ago

All of that calamity

It haunts me today

To make peace I have tried

Reminders of the past come out when I interact

Reopen those wounds when I have cried

We must keep in measure

The way we communicate with one another

Deeds will pass from way back when

Yet they will continue to fester if we place blame on the other

We must find find a common narrative

Closure is needed to come to terms

Ones that we can agree upon

If and when one learns

…DCG

However you Calculate

What is sloth?

What is feckless?

Not Wei Wu Wei

As only this idea is not reckless

Knowing a behavior is wrong

Yet you still ignore it and do

Does not cancel the idea

That you know is true

Maybe it is the fear

That prevents you from proper action

Maybe it is habit

That spurs on this protraction

However you calculate

However you sum

You’ll probably not change

Until you’ve begun

DCG

When the damage is Done

We make choices

You can’t redo what has been done

Whether you lose the trust

Or whether you’ve won

We all have challenges

Some are better off than me

They don’t feel the pain like I do

Somethings they won’t ever have to see

Some will never get it

Some may never take into account

The failures of their inaction

The pendulum swings from surmount to discount

I know this is a hard conversation

In family one must work through blame

Get beyond the emotion

Get beyond the shame

What strikes me hardest

Is an unwillingness to directly address

Ones own personal connections

Why we deny and why we do not profess

This takes courage

This takes nerve

Some may learn to overcome their weaknesses

Some will just only serve

DCG

The Compunction of my Error

Growing pains are a certainty

On which we cannot deny

Only time tested strategies

Are likely to apply

You can’t blame your family

For the lessons they don’t teach

It is up to you

As you do when you learn to reach

So when that voice from within

Compels me to reflect

On things that cause me discomfort

For things I’ve done I’d ought to reject

It is for this reason

Why we should forgive

We are not infallible beings

As this is how I see fit to live

DCG

 

The endless division to reconcile

The foundation of trust

Lies in our honesty

Not only on the personal level

But in all of society

Truth permeates culture

Despite all of our reasons to lie

If you never ask the questions

You will never know why

The laws of man

Were meant to be applied

Equally for everyone

But only a free moral people can decide

The problem with the laws of man

The endless division to reconcile

The minds of men are compromised

The same minds that are used in the trial

DCG

 

 

We need to have a Conversation

We need to have a conversation

One that reduces our political doubt

It seems our reliance on any media bias’

Only drives our willingness to shout out

We must strip away the narrative commentary

Discuss the ideas’ logical construction

And dismiss all of the fallacies

By simple logical deduction

If we use any sources for reference

We should cite each source

Noting which ones we reject

And which ones we endorse

I tire of all of the rhetoric

The sophistry that we spew

Who here is not guilty?

Who here will admit there are very few?

We seem to be polarized

As evidenced by the social media rant

I wonder who will rise above the hyperbole?

I wonder about those who can’t

Have we lost our minds?

Trying to prove our political expertise

In truth it lies in the study of human behavior

And in the study of logic but with no guarantees
