Day By Day: My Newest Addition to my Poem Collection

Day by day,

As time goes on,

One thing that stays,

Is dusk and dawn.

Places change;

New things will form.

Opposites exchange;

People die and people are born.

Good versus Evil,

My wrong is your right,

Sequel to prequel.

Which came first; day or night?

Organized chaos is,

The bed that our Fathers made.

Clandestine seances,

And a debt still to be payed.

Biased reporters,

Only trying to mislead.

Payed extorters,

Cause victors to recede.

Truth and lies;

Two irrelevant historical terms.

So train your eyes,

And teach them how to discern.

Not everything you see,

Is quite how it appears.

Expect to pay a fee,

Until the results are clear.

Solid and stubborn,

In both mind and spirit.

With qualities to govern,

Both speech and appearance.

Experience gained,

Creates opportunities earned.

Lions tamed,

Creates a table that turns.

      I enjoyed your work and I believe I detected a little political assessment . I agree about what is seen in today's world, and under our wary watch. Yes, truth is discernible, if our eyes are trained to assess it, while lies may fall along the wayside.
