    Is it wrong
    to try to make wrong, right?
    Would you attempt
    to change day into night
    Would you try to force
    the lion to lay next to the lamb
    when neither animal acts likes
    they give a good ****?
    Do you throw all caution
    to the wind and try,
    no matter what the stakes,
    just do or die?
    Do you claim temporary insanity
    simply to prove a point of view
    Is your way of seeing things
    that important to you?
    Apparently
    For it seems to me
    that you are trying to show
    just how convincingly you can go
    left, than left again, turning into
    a right, only to have that right
    be so, so wrong
    no matter what direction you might
    have meant to have taken
    Now honestly,
    is it wrong?

    My "wrong" ...could rightly, be your "right" just as well as ...I could see one "comming" and the same one, you can view as..."going"
    ...did I say that right?
    love the poem either way, thanks for sharing

    Sometimes, a person can see an apple is an apple, and keep trying to make it an orange anyway. But, I get what you're saying, it's in the way one views things. Thank you for the luv queent.

    Well brotha, yes, and there are some things that are wrong to all concerned, but I guess that's when that "don't care" notion gets the nod. Thanks for the response Rich.

    Not acting from one's heart never pays, because it's dishonest to self and others. This is a deep mental ride, girl. I likes.

    Multi faceted, so many sides to look at, being true to self without hurting another. I always appreciate your support sister gempis.

    I like this flow. It's very deep and intense.

    It's not wrong to make a wrong right.
    If you don't make adjustments you can't make it right.
    We have the bible as a road map and plan.
    Many know it and play other hands.

    I'm referring to the absurd.
    How others have taken this thing to the brink.
    It's those who hinder the progress that stinks.
    Some say you should never look back.
    I can't totally agree with that plan of attack.
    Some times we have to wake away now.
    Come back another day to fix it somehow.

    " Do you throw all caution
    to the wind and try,
    no matter what the stakes,
    just do or die? "

    I did when I was younger, but I learned this isn't the way.
    Don't close your eyes and ears to what you see and they say.
    Never let another tread on you.
    Correct the wrong if you feel you can.
    Then give it up to GOD put it in his hands.

    If I do throw caution to the wind.
    I know how it will land
    and I prepare for the winds.

    Those who want to make somthing into what it isn't are fooling themselves. Hoping you go along with the foolishness. This way of thinking makes two or more losers.

    Be true to yourself.

    Hodee, you tend to give well thought out responses to threads which is something I appreciate you taking the time to do. The main point I received from your words, not to simplify them, was to take heed to what my gut tells me is true. After recognizing and dealing with the truth, put it in God's hands. I hear what you're saying brotha. Thank you.
