Morals And Morale - Poem by Rani Turton

Its evident for many and aren't they lucky
Its obvious that the two go together
Like a couple hand and hand.

Does my morale depend on my morals
Or the morale of the nation
Or does it depend on the morals of the world
Or the state of the nation
When bombs rain down on helpless people
Who never asked for it but just to live
My morale dives and my morals are uneasy
I can convince myself of anything
Cops and robbers stuff you know
The good and the bad, the guilty punished
The righteous basking in a righteous glow

But it is has not been easy. Morals and morale
Dive nose-down
Like those bombs on some nameless helpless town.

    The depth and strength of a human character
    Are defined by its moral reserves.
    People reveal themselves completely
    Only when they are thrown out of
    The customary conditions of their life,
    For only then do they have to
    Fall back on their reserves.”

    -Leonardo da Vinci.

    States and Nations
    Where the rule is in the hands of
    People who don't have such reserve
    Do dropp bombs...

    Nicely framed... Thank You.

    I'm sure that you must be right. How many of us, though, can say that we have unimpeachable morals? loved your poem.

    This needs to be written the bigger the letters the better we have to many leaders
    who can't even spell the words Morls or Morale they dont know the context or the meaning of them, little do they realise that on these two words the world could take a giant step forward, thanks for the write Rani 10 Chris

    Poignant write, Rani. Love the line 'the righteous basking in a righteous glow'. It only takes a really great line to prove you're a poet - in here it's proof positive. Most deep poem. Enjoyed. HG: -) xx (Report) Reply
