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

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

If you are Caught in an Argument

I have principles

I have dignity

I’m asked to question myself

In this PC society

When cult and culture

Combine and collide

Repeating a mantra

Won’t help the divide

If you are caught in an argument

You don’t fully understand

You may as well toss up a coin

To see how it will land

We must decide

What we entertain?

How we will cope?

In the public domain

The Vendors of Vice

When journalism and reporting become opinion

The more I see

The vendors of vice

A moral hipocracy

An internet connection

A social media voice

Endless dissemination of judgement

Largely filtered by technocrats choice

The party that is morally bankrupt

Usually throws the first stone

Only the doctrine of division

Is the only doctrine they own

How many pass the litmus?

Joel was rebuked in his echo chamber

Some ideas should have push back

An argument tested and tempered in debate

May shed more light under attack

It is up to the person

To learn from the account

The argument must follow the facts

This axiom is tantamount

To excise a moral tax

If you revel in the camp

The mob mentality of majority rule

Falling into an intellectual cesspool

How many of us can face the mirror?

How many of us self-reflect?

How many pass the litmus?

How many just deflect?

DCG

On this Road Alone I will Tread

Where do you turn?

With your back against the wall

If you rely on your history

Again you will surely fall

It’s a bad habit

Not to pay attention to the rule

No other result can occur, but

Appellation fool!

Give me inspiration

I pray a path I find

Right the wrongs that have forsaken me

I must forgive and leave it behind

The moral imperative before me

I must alone make the decision ahead

May I have the courage to make a way

On this road alone I will tread

DCG

Does not the braggart remain the fool?

You can build an intellect

Upon which you shall discern

The merit of a liberal education

Applied to that of which you shall learn

When you place yourself above others

Citing knowledge and facts you claim you know

Setting yourself up as authority

Isn’t it sad that this is what the braggart must show

Social media as an echo chamber

Test the water with politicized debate

But if you never look at critical evidence

You will only achieve a stalemate

What is morally reprehensible

Using ad hominem to attack

Belittling any opposition

Wrongly deposing any rendering of fact

When moral turpitude is not taken into account

Your only attempt is to try and school

You miss the forest for the trees

Does not the braggart remain the fool?

The Many Signposts on our Path

You tell yourself a fantasy

The expectation is defined

If you are able to see the truth

A reality is refined

You will never see the light

If you continue to look in the dark

How can you correct a wrong?

If you never attempt to embark?

Do you ever question your motives?

Take the time to examine your spin?

Do you always come out on top?

Does your justification always win?

By definition we are not perfect

But only some are receptive to see

The many signposts on our path

Will remind us but with no guarantee

Enrich a life to Survive

Ethics should have a deep root

In everything that we do

Our treatment of other people

Of ourselves

And of politics too

We have all been wronged

But there are many who don’t know why

Disassociate from yourself and others

The amoral have no need to lie

What happened to our culture and people?

A devil’s ego that lives within

Excludes themselves from others morality

This herein lies the sin

A destruction of family and values

An educational system designed to fail

America’s literacy rate of 17 percent

The proof in the pudding of this tale

The greatest threat to western society

When migrants do not assimilate

If they care not of liberty yet demand equality

There defines the cultural checkmate

So if these words reach you

Keep our values alive

Educate and teach to others

Enrich a life to survive

DCG

Motives of the beguiled

Motives of the beguiled

Often hidden from the meek

Considered safe to prey on

The non confrontational are who they seek

The vapid souls

Who bring about discontent

Harm themselves

The insolent

In every interaction

And with every exchange

We have a chance to better ourselves

We have a chance to change

A pattern in our behavior

Not always self-evident

Sometimes the questions of others

Can extrude the eminent

We are not just the animal

Not just the beast

Nor are we an insect

As human reason can be released

I don’t see the truth

In the words that you speak

Only in the behavior

And the actions which you seek

Part of the human condition

We are able to reflect

Think about our past

And begin to dissect

Only the conscientious

Only the awake

Examine themselves to reconcile

Better for them to give then to take
