Mistakes you will make, but it’s not the end, because today is the day to try again.
I’ve always heard the phrase, “Do what’s right, not what is easy.” Also, “Honesty is the best policy.” It is evident that many people, for the most part, try to do the right thing showing moral fiber in their character. They display a conscience that cares about humanity, not selected bits and pieces of stuff or positions that will only benefit them. But on the other hand, it’s so disheartening when we see people who have compromised decency, honesty, and integrity in such a foul way, and it doesn’t seem to bother their crass behavior one iota. And somehow, they still seem to come out ahead and on top.

This is tragically disheartening, especially when we try to teach children honesty, integrity, and how to be good citizens. People can only fix their character flaw(s) if they want to. Are we leading others astray with disgusting examples about how to lie, cheat, and steal without suffering any consequences? Well, whether they are prepared for it or not, consequences will follow them like a shadow and when they least expect it, they will have to answer for their horrific deeds. After hearing the opening quote to this post about mistakes, which came from the movie, “A Score to Settle,” I thought about our power to do the right thing as much as we possibly can. When people step outside their arrogance, greed, vengeance, narcissism, and any other “ism” by returning to a state of decency, order, and honor, then we will witness a better, loving, and more peaceful world.
We Are Poetry!
One body, many members.
Each member has a purpose, a responsibility, and is accountable for what they do to strengthen the body, not weaken it.
We vow to make decency, order, unity, equality, ethics, love, and integrity matter, noteworthy, and even more popular on a massive, global scale once again.
