Spiritual Deserters - Poem by Dorothy Kardas, Psy.D. Th.D.
No taste of victory when lacking self-diminution -
Self-deflation invites soul-searching and contrition.
No armor of courage without harvest of self-sacrifice
No loyal devotion while lacking the gem of selfless devotion
Love's abandoned without oblation and dedication
Look at the Cross without Its Triumph all is a loss...
To conquer festering lies to save grandeur of lives
With gangrenous moral relapse,
Needed collectivity shall collapse
Self-satisfied fragility - foster nurse of society's
Crooked path and rascality;
Ill-thought-out liberation -
Many shades of values cultivation
Cannot bring forth humanity's unification.
Unchecked passion and urges, untaught hearts surges
Baseness and futility of ways and means father
Futility and baseness of events and ends...
Violence wears garments of lies, concealing crimes;
Participants in diseased deceits,
Expanding deep sea of gory misdeeds.
In malicious and volatile world, on destruction brink,
Do not waste your ink!
