Treasure Island

Adrian Wait

(A Long while ago / England)

What is

Darkness is not Light
Democracy is not politics
Different is not adversary
Indifference is not neutral
Healthcare is not purchased
Education is not Knowledge
Poverty is not poor in spirit
Knowledge is not Wisdom
A Crowd is not democracy
Meekness is not weakness
Corruption is not success
Invasion is not liberation
War is not peacekeeping
Church is not Kingdom
Hearing is not Listening
Property is not forever
Status is not Character
Folly is not eccentric
Wealth is not success
Tradition is not Faith
Earth is not for sale
Religion is not holy
Power is not might
Fame is not hope
Might is not right
Faith is not Chosen
Christ is not owned
Status is not Character
Humanity is not perfect
Truth is not found in isms
Happiness is not purchased
Justice is not equal, but just
Meekness is not weakness
Mercy is not understood
To be is not a privilege
Charity is not Justice
God is not our mind
Poor is not invisible
Love is not mocked
Greed is not good
Up is not down
Right is not left
I is not we
To be is
God is

The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
