Bronze Star - 5,408 Points (February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)

Uninformed


My observations began to collect,
With a reflecting of remembered experiences...
As I adventured into the wilderness,
And with a daring curiosity...
Wherever I placed my own footsteps.
To gather my own beliefs to accept.

Easy it is to sit in denial,
When reality has not yet been visited.
Easy it is to spread from gossip a rumor,
When relying on gossip...
Validates one's existence and approval of others,
Who themselves have not adventured life.

Deceptions and delusions are close relatives.
And conflicts and confusion is the main course,
People addicted crave with a feasting to eat.
Uninformed they are and most likely to protest.
While the ones ostracized to be censored by lies,
Are generally despised because they prefer truth.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
