We are how we treat each
Other when the day is done
We are peace, We are war
We are how we treat each other
And nothing more— The Alternate Routes

“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn” – Benjamin Franklin

We are not the
Ordained ones
Nor anointed
Or in possession
Of bejeweled crown
As it’s said:
“Uneasy lies the
Head that wears
The crown”
I only hope
One knows
What that means
‘Cause I am not
A mean & lean machine

One cannot sit
In judgement on others
And dictate them as
To what they can or
Cannot do
‘Cause we have
No Rules
Learn to mind
One’s business
As finally the onus
Will be on you.

Fling the windows
And drapes open
Let the sunshine in
Letting the radiance of
The Pristine Teachings
Shine through
‘Cause Living in Ignorance
As well compelling people
And perpetuating the faith
Is totally a “skewered” thing

Choicest Happiness
