To Err Is Human - Poem by Per. Nig.

Moses and Joseph at Pharaoh’s court
Led them did support
Sons of Adam and Noah
Lot’s wife
Lost consciously
The way of life
From endlessly discussing what is right or wrong
who is innocent or guilty along
There's no profit
Oh Lord
Convert me to a prophet!

    I agree that to err is human and we are all human. But we can reach out to each other in spite of all the differences. We need not compromise our beliefs to build a bridge
    of warmth across the barriers of race and culture. Much food for thought expressed here. Excellent work. Ten.

    Kind regards,

    'To err is human to forgive divine' Alexander Pope.No human is perfect and we can't expect anyone else to be so we learn to live with that one humanly frail truth.'Let ye without sin cast the first stone'-Jesus.Forgiving is better than hate. (Report) Reply

    There can be endless discussions on right and wrong depending on a persons view. Most often no problem is solved and time and energy is wasted. Some lose their way listening to the World and not to God.........10 (Report) Reply

    It is like a case before King Solomon, in which two mothers dispute over the possession of one child. To finalise the case the king tried a mock show of dividing the child into two and giving to each one one half. But the real mother came to give her life for the child rahter than dissecting it into two. She was the real mother decided King Solomon. Now we don't have such wise king to decide this matter and so, to err is human continues forever. Nice poem of the day! (Report) Reply

    Very much a deep thought here.
    But when the person to trust,
    it is not necessary to look back as the wife Lota looked...
    I am glad for this poems...
    The Humanism a synonym of the god and the god for all is One...
    Amir, 10...
