A big question..........


The just cause?


Fighting for a good cause,

But who to applause,

Does it not beg the question?


Grieving those that are fallen,

But is the grieving left to all them?

Who are they’re loved ones,


Right or wrong,

Is it your tune and song?

Who makes that judgment?


Cause and response it was,

Or is it response and cause?

Which comes first the chicken or egg,


I know of a philosopher who taught a better way!

Is he your God?

Can you tell me who he, she, is?


Do you abide by these philosophies?

Or do you do your own thing?

Make your own laws?


Whose laws do you follow?

Why if I may ask?

Respect? Fear? Disrespect? Don’t care?


When is the last time you pinned a medal of bravery on him?

Or honoured his cause?

Or fought for it?


Have you been decorated for that?

By whom?

Will it be honoured, where you’re going next?


What heaven is your Walhalla?

Are you a hero there?

Who there is your judge?


There will be no prize for answering these questions,

Do it out of curiosity,

Or just out of pure conscience.

Someone said once "I dread of those corridors with old couches where old people sits day after day waiting for God's call"
Been there once, long ago, their families didn't bother to come visiting anymore.
A long empty corridor, them and God's arrival being delayed.

These are some very good questions that everyone should be prepared to examine, and try to answer, Jasmin. Unfortunately, I hear more people preparing for their retirement than for what comes afterwards. "For it is appointed unto man once to die, and then the judgement."....Jerry

The laws of God always come first and should come first no matter what the religion. Mans laws are just that and when they come into conflict with each other, revert back to God's laws as he is the one who has judgement over all. Interesting concept of thought....

Be always safe,
Reviewed by Sage Sweetwater 5/15/2008
A very brilliant query at the powers of creation and whom we individually hold as our higher power. There is no question of being true to thine own self - we must. The just cause is a poetic model for the mind's eye. Jasmin, your sharp quill wields the higher thought process for the ages. Be well always, Jasmin...Blessed Be.

Reviewed by Regina Pounds 5/15/2008
Bravo! Your questions tie together the heroism, the worship, the conscience, and the indifference of your everyday-person.

Life is a struggle...universal conscience isn't always the driving force, nor can it be.
