ATTAINING PERFECTION

 Though the golden temples
of philosophy were again to
rise, offering us sanction--

and the absolute acme of
human attainment, we'd not
earn the key to heaven...

 even with the cooperation
of science and religion--
and the blessing of angels.

 For even then, this world
of erring humanity wouldn't
advance to a perfect society.

 We will approach perfection
only when every human soul
is free, and war is history.

-- Delma Luben

A wise poetic expression. "Attaining Perfection" shines.

I salute You, Poet.
