Peace my friends

Updated on October 29, 2010

I can see that you see

A minute flaw

that bites at times or not at all:

A clever tongue

Natures gift

more used to trouble

then aiding thought

God gave a heart

(though defective from inception 

or by design)

then mandated I teach

helped me to see

all men as equals,

all things the same.

I found if all must improve

then truth or my version

must have a place.

I find to my shame

that oft an effort to share

seems a chance to tease

cutting young down

making innocents bleed.

This temptation a tenacious Demon

that vexes me greatly;

I therefore plead grace.

Please abide

for eye to eye I would discourse

with no muffle or shout

A creature of obsession

I speak as I am accustom

No vanity or frills

So if I wound I apologize

Words kindly meant still kill.

      It means I was tired and not feeling well when I wrote this. Thank you for pointing it out. It gave me a chance to revise this work.
