    the mindsets of man...
    the nature thereof...
    and if I had the power
    would I coerce the sun to shine?
    claim it's light as mine?
    would I bribe the moon
    to reflect and cast bad light?
    try and smear and ruin
    the natural hues of night?
    would I on the sneak charge the stars with secret guilt?
    offenses simply not committed?
    devote my life to convincing the world
    that they did it?
    or would I by design shroud
    dawn's horizon with gray and hateful
    storm clouds that none may find the light?
    and why? because the sun can't help
    but to shine?
    because the stars can but twinkle
    and glimmer in the night?
    and as a way to glory
    would I in my greedy fingers
    bind the light?
    and twist it to my own gain?
    would I fein love to blind eyes
    lost in the darkness?
    not win but steal hearts
    as if this would add one inch
    to my stature
    mankind and human nature...
    is it not far better to give?
    and what of the saying
    'live and let live?'
    no wonder man is so limited...

    Skrybe...Skrybe...Skrybe...you leave me speechless and limited of words to describe this poem about the "true" nature of mankind.

    You speak truth, with poetic hues...Great flow!

    Thanx Sierra!!
    btw I put a web address
    up at the bottom of my posts
    as a subtle, open invitation
    to visit my website and even
    drop a few lines, but
    didn't want to be too subtle
    so I mentioned it to a few
    people as it seemed relevant.
    But I'd love for you to check
    it out!
    Peace to ya!
