We need to keep SHAME alive! That's why I write this poem for a reminder....!

 

 

 

Shame, where is it gone, it’s a shame

No one seems to know, it’s such a shame

In these days some of us don’t know shame

They are making it become quite a fantasy

Even so, to have lost shame it’s a big shame

It’s not right for us to void our world of shame

 

While some people would like to get rid of it

With many of us it’ll ever find a place of refuge

Even if, others will kill it for fame and fortune

We know having no shame is still a big shame

It reveals dishonesty but will improve virtue

It’s not right for us to void our world of shame

 

It’s an essential guide to induce us to be genuine

Usually it disfigures or dampens wrongdoer’s face

It has great power that can change countenance

Revealing all types of misconduct and injustice

We will always need it to live a righteous lifestyle

It’s not right for us to void our world of shame

 

Though seeing how many people are behaving

Shamefully they might’ve already killed shame

Since only those of us who know what shame is

Won’t easily do or say things to make us ashamed

We try to live right for the sake of righteousness

It’s not right for us to void our world of shame.

If one cannot feel shame and guilt and regret when one has done something wrong, then that person has no conscience... ...and that is the saddest of things. Love, peace, and blessings to you, Clarence,

Shame can bring a person down but with our Lords help some can rise above it and become whole. . Well Said!...M
Reviewed by JMS Bell 8/28/2012
AMEN, CLARENCE! CERTAINLY YOUR POINT IS WELL TAKEN IN THAT SHAME CAN BE A TOKEN BY WHICH WE ARE CONVICTED OF SIN WHEN WE HAVE DONE SOMETHING WRONG. WRONG IN THOUGHT, WORD, ACTION OR DEED. TO IGNORE SHAME OR REFUSE TO FEEL SHAME IN INSTANCES SUCH AS YOU HAVE BROUGHT TO LIGHT, CERTAINLY CAN BE SEEN AS THE INABILITY TO ADMIT WRONG. AND THIS SORT OF SHAMELESSNESS IS, AS YOU HAVE STATED...WORLD WIDE. BUT THIS INDICATES SOMETHING THAT THE BIBLE CLEARLY STATES WILL BE. FOR THE END IS NEAR, CLARENCE AND WE, AS CHRISTIANS, CAN ONLY PRAY. FOR WE KNOW THAT ALMIGHTY GOD ALREADY KNOWS THE END AND HE IS STILL VERY MUCH IN CHARGE. THINGS WILL ONLY GO AS FAR AS HE ALLOWS THEM TO. THIS IS A FINE WORK YOU HAVE SHARED AND I THANK YOU FOR SHARING. IT. LOVE, BLESSINGS AND FAITH...JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS.

Clarence,
With all the violence in the world today SHAME doesn't seem to have a part. Well written and needs to be said.

Many blessings,

A job well done! We need this sort of writing to bring back shame; then, we might secure truth and righteousness.

AMEN! Well said, my friend. God bless.
Reviewed by Axilea MU 8/16/2012
Guilt and shame are important feelings that need to be understood. They are a garanty that people are trying to deal with typically human questions, of feeling guilty and ashamed. So, they have a conscience and don't live in total indifference.

I also agree and I add that respect is what is missing. Shame is what folks should feel when we don't treat one another with respect, care and consideration.

Like the Christian farmer said, "Where is your FRUIT?"

Blessings in Christ,

John Michael Domino

great write clarence...god knows our shame and is waitng for us to admit and ask for his forgivenes...this generation we find ourselves in doesn't recognize what shame is
Reviewed by Ronald Hull 8/16/2012
You're right on all points. We've just about banned judges that give sentences according to the crime. A little shame never hurt anybody. Put a sign on them “Shame on you.”
