Chaos Vs Order - Poem by Alison Smith

Within the circle the female power surged
Each woman held the power to her
For every word said another was felt
Each took strength from the other

Outside the circle of male power ran
Each man vying for dominance in word
All striving to gain the edge from the other
Chaos prevailed within them

Between the circles an eddy existed
As the forces fought
Who would be benefactor of the talk
What would be learnt from the experience?

    Individualism can be productive, for the individual, short term....It is your collective concept that produces the most consistently positive outcome, societally speaking
    And in achieving this, each individual will have a more auspicious experience when
    they are forced to to go it on there own, as they will take with them all they have learned within the collective circle of communication.A superb piece of work, Alison

    A valuable message. A lot of people could learn something from this... if they would just listen. Good write, Alison!

    That's a bloody good one, Alison. And too true to be ignored! (Report) Reply
