Fifty Shades of Truth: A Poem
A commander, a true master - for whom we'd gladly bleed!
One who sees the deepest Truths - then follows word with deed,
Who won't let Power overcome - seduce, corrupt - impede!
When the gift is under-valued - straits quickly turn to dire.
Is there but One to emulate? With self-restraint one can admire?
Maintaining morals under stress - still holding standards higher!
Actions speak much louder yet - and scream in times of strife!
Wooing many others, while at home you have a wife,
To her face you pledge your Love - in her back you plunge your knife!
Yes, arrogance prevails where exists a lack of shame,
First cultivating disrespect - then Trust is set aflame!
Priorities get twisted while playing life's array of games,
Gratify us NOW - a flaw we never overcame!
With frauds and fakes abundant - the Truth is tough to follow,
Disheartened and confused - we shiver, shake, and wallow!
Ones Word should be ones bond - truthful, never hollow,
Has the question now become: Which bullshit do we swallow?
