Fairness

Outwardly it looks like vengence

In reality it is feeding our awareness

Making us all stronger through sufferance

Privileged will suffer because of our unfairness

~~~~

Inwardly it is His mercy and love

Will we choose the path of selfless kindness

Where we seek rather than be served to serve

Leave behind our moral blindness

~~~~

Will we stand in solidarity with those who suffer

Take the path of acceptance each other embrace

Matters not our religion or lack thereof we are lovers

Rise up take hold of our brother’s hand and face.

~~~~

Inspired by “The foundation of the kingdom of God is laid upon justice, fairness, mercy, sympathy and kindness to every soul”-‘Abdu’l-Baha, Exemplar of the Baha’i Faith

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
