Certified To Validate Common Sense


Listening with a desire to comprehend,
Increases one's ability to understand.
And...
Welcomes others to acknowledge,
A wisdom one has earned.
With a respect given accepted to expect.

Ears closed with eyes that roll,
Only advances a comfortability shown controlled...
With an ignorance exposing,
An attraction to keep detached and irresponsible.
Proving lips incapable to be shut and zipped,
To receive the benefit of incoming INFO.

Manmade conflicts can and could be avoided.
Divisions meant to inflict would be eliminate,
If...
Discipline and tolerance were enforced upon minds,
As a pre-requisite.
And required to be certified to validate common sense.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
