    You probably were thinking
    This is just another mistake
    Not worthy of
    Any effort you might make
    So you stayed clear
    Watching it fall
    i can't resist
    i must make a call
    To all of you poets
    With your words and talent
    Scribe here, make it bloom and show it
    And do what we must
    Turn mistakes into opportunities
    Turn misgivings into trust
    Yes, you in all of your glory
    Remember you came out of the dust
    And ashes return to ashes
    Don't get lost in your lust
    And lose your humanity
    That makes you real
    Guard your sanity
    Don't try to take
    What you can't give
    Or try to make
    Hopeless dead matter live

    U hit me with this piece.

    "Don't get lost in your lust & lose your humanity"

    Many, many, many times that happens & people later ask why.
