Reason Out - Poem by Michelle Candelaria

If the world will be lucky enough
To surpass all these trying times
Then who among those who are good
Deserves the key to the great kingdom

If everybody who admits goodness
Will fight over a single reward
And the lunatics will accept defeat
Who among them are really great?
Is it not that those who are proud
Will end up in the lowest rank
And those who are humble
Will sit at the throne

The complexity of every principle
Lies not on its meaning
But on how it is understood
And practiced

    The complexity of every principle
    Lies not on its meaning
    But on how it is understood
    And practiced
    Very well said.
