Persian Nightingale

Golden Mean Poem by Persian Nightingale

Greed, pride, envy, dishonesty and lust
Contentment, modesty, honesty and trust
All are good in their own place
Golden mean is the life's base

    Very interesting combination of what seems contraries at first sight...
    Deep poem... The contraction of the thought through few lines creates, as usual in your poems, an intensified effect.
