The Process Of Living - Poem by chuck Hurley

Most of our lives we believe what others have already said
We accept rather than question; as if our mind was dead
Seek and you shall find is invalidated when the mind is led.
We let others tell us what others have already told them
Old thoughts are repeated over and over and over again
Onver ten thousand yeaars of thought, law and rule; by primarily men.

If a mind can form a question, think about it and then explain
It can use the gift for a lifetime and perhaps again and again
Part of the human living process is to chose and never abstain.
Choice is given to you and need never be a slave to another
A mind is to think, illuminate and enlighten and not smother
The gift of free will includes the individual right to discover.

Be wary of those who say your a sinner and note their gender
They who serve also have a bias and prejudice and also an agenda
The contents of each mind will be judged when time we render.
The human mind lies under the dome of our physical frame
It will be the arbitrator of every evil act of human shame
The indiscrimnimate killing of children is mankind's primary stain.
