I am dark and I am light, we are all a mixture of these extremes
We are evil and we are good, is it worth denying this?
No one is perfect, how true is that?
One man’s poison is another man’s fat
We can’t all be the same
Trying to be, will drive us insane
What do you deem good and evil?
Does everyone agree?
I think you’ll find if you asked around only a third would see what you see
Maybe more, maybe less, maybe the same
But as I said before, striving for perfection will drive us insane
Do you agree with gay marriage? How about the man down the road?
Do you agree there’s a tortuous hell, burning up bad souls?
Do you agree in polygamy or are you monogamously straying?
Do you beat the bad dog that is always baying?
There are many questions I want to ask, there’s so many different answers
Some of us want to be rich or ballerina dancers
As you can see, not all of us
Yet our perceptions we demand on others
Do we have that right to individually smother another into our way of thinking?
I think to do that would involve a lot of stinking!
Live in peace with your fellow man
Follow your own path
But don’t forget to allow him too, in his joys let him bath
No one knows what perfection is, until they’ve allowed all things, to live in harmony being themselves and without your tongues stings
With this poem I had hoped that it would give out a message to all people to allow individuality in others no matter whether you agree with it or not. No one can understand what is truly good or truly bad, no one can know what perfection is, because we all have our own idea of perfect.
If we don’t like something, or someone, or a situation another person is in, is it really our concern? If they are happy then leave them alone. I know so many people who either bully or attack people they disagree with, you want peace on earth? Be the peace on earth!
