L. B. Mek

Inherent humanity

Misunderstanding’s, expectations and its presumption

corrupt - sculpted destiny’s

with the soiled hands of deception 


immersed in the shadows of regret 

determined to undo past mistakes 

by foolishly manhandling, the scope

of future generations: hopes 

with misconstrued rules 

of inept direction.


In spite of the odds against, new fledglings commence in haste

ill-informed and unprepared 

drenched in the naivety of immaturity 


grappling with the blind sighted mappings 

of previous generations failings

unable to comprehend 

the complex perils that lie in wait

yearning, from early on 

to test the limits of their fate…

    GOOD EVENING Friend - Brian here!
    When we*re Young we*re still Optimists
    I still am @ 37! Those who are older and
    whose Predictions & Presumptions have
    failed - first one & then another - tend tp
    morph into Pessimists ! Indecision dulls
    the edge of HUSBANDRY ~ AMEN!

    Thanks for Sharing.
    Blessings & Peace to YOU & YOURS
    Love Angela - Brian - Smokey ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐ŸคŽ
