In, Out - Poem by Hannington Mumo

Out the greed-bound fella brandishing lust,
In the saintlier man flashing lamps of truth
With wise sayings and rhymes that soothe,
To let the past sinful modes return to dust.

Out the hasty hand that tosses love and care,
In the more careful soul that tolerates all
With a heart that does not let its beloveds fall,
The caring spirit that treasures all jewels rare.

    Love conquers all. It is the rarest jewel, a jewel the weight of which cannot be checked. Greed for power, greed for wealth, greed for destruction are black spots. But love, kindness, humanity can erase these black spots. (Report) Reply
