Are we not compromised?

 

Are we not compromised?

Can our reasoning be corrupt?

Can we hold politicians accountable?

Only if we can interrupt?

An entitlement class

The collective Socialist dream

Producers in a society produce

While those who only take is a right that they deem

The inflated ego

Exempt themselves from the law

Self interest the temptation

They manifest their own moral downfall

The accolades of celebrity

The seduction of mass delusion

The “no fault of mine” bubble

Is the result of their conclusion

Colonization and Conquest

Human history full of account

Rockefeller and Rothschild

Sermon on the mount

The divine laws have spoken

The corruptible experiments of man

Which ones will we follow?

Which ones will we ban?

It’s a bitter pill to swallow

It’s a bitter pill to swallow

My Johari window is open for me to see

A glimpse of my reality

What are the chances I will change how I’ll be?

It’s hard to perceive your self correctly

In the shadow of your own ego

The defenses we erect to protect us

Are hidden deep and will seldom ever show

Personal objectivity is a utopian concept

Yet it is still a celebrated goal

It takes great effort and great discipline

For us to master the soul

The commoner or the sage

All have fortuitous opportunities

Align with what you value

Align with no disunities

Authenticity carries heavy weight

How we act is subject to review

To improve upon your character

Is clearly something we should pursue

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

DCG

Wallow in the Mire

Ask the right questions

Focus on the good

Knowing that you have been wronged

Won’t matter if this is understood

The best way forward

You must first find your stride

Following the affirmative

Let this be your guide

When you allow the cynical voices

To occupy your mind

You squelch any happiness

That you are willing if able to find

Wallow in the mire

Bespattered with wounded pith

If you remain there too long

A potential to overcome becomes myth

DCG

I Seek Confirmation

I seek confirmation

On my opinions I proclaim

I use social media

A proclamation of this self-indulgent fame

I find myself captured

In the divisive political realm

The arena of gladiatorial rhetoric

Will often take the helm

Speak to the hive mind

Cower to the mob rule

Will they forsake, will they join?

Will they ridicule?

We can’t change the discourse

We can’t change a rational mind

We can only beseech the guileless

For surely an allegiance we will find

I choose to post a meme

I find it easier to convey

The lowest form of humor

I relegate my sarcastic resume

I Heard it from the Dali Lama

I heard it from the Dali Lama

It was also JC that said

For those that do you wrong

Return with goodness and love instead

We do not have to agree with others

We may have a different point of view

But we should not personalize emotional attacks

It is this animus we must see through

If you shine light on any darkness

You may be surprised at what you see

We must rise above our own egos

Respond with kindness to truly be free

Change a mind with kindness

You will work good deeds in belief

Change a heart with kindness

You will forever cast away any opportunity of grief

DCG

In Ignorance We Consent

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

Representative of all classes

DCG

I’d Rather Risk Sharing

Am I in too deep?

I’m always thinking of you

What is going on inside me?

It’s just my point of view

There are people in this world

They capture your essence

Even the grown man again becomes the adolescent

Don’t get me wrong

It feels good to express this

It’s not everyday this happens

A special someone who gives you bliss

We begin to ask questions

When reason alone cannot solve

But it’s matters of the heart

That must be resolved

We question our motives

Why our feelings run so deep

Allowing ourselves to open up

Sometimes it’s best to take that leap

I’d rather not lock down my emotions

Protect my ego and it’s trappings

Live my life as I really am

In all of my happenings

Better to be honest

Present the true self you wish to be

We attract what we project

At least that’s what I see

You might think it’s not worth it

Controlling your heart by keeping it still

The consequences of such action

Are imposed upon us by our will

You will never achieve any happiness

This resolution imprisons the Soul

I’d rather meet my world freely

Not surrender my ego to control

I’d rather risk sharing my true feelings

Than never to have let you know

This would be more tragic

To conceal with a fear to show

I don’t fear the stigma of rejection

I don’t just throw my feelings about

I am secure and hold myself accountable

Despite how things might turn out

DCG

The Quicksand of the Soul

Attachment

The quicksand of the soul

Siddhartha mustered this insight

So many, many years ago

How do I know?

How do I relate?

Do I make this up?

Do I confabulate?

How many paths?

How many ways?

We can seduce ourselves

Clinging to this fantasy gaze

Fear not my compatriots

The wisdom comes from age

Tempered in the forge of reality

Allow the mind to disengage

WikiPsalm #Thirteen

There are times when we wake

From a trance like sleep

Giving in to an inner voice

Making promises we can’t keep

It is precisely in this time

We should vindicate our aspiration

Acknowledging a conflict building

Within this mindful vexation

Become clear about what is important

Clarify this in your deeds

Do not let unworthy influence

Give council that often misleads
