The Wrong Side of the Fence

by smileycloud

few might have much
many have little
is it all dependent on which side of the tracks?
can one rise up above poverty?
does the rich and famous
have the opportunity
to have a heart?

is it the person?
or geography?

circumstance or fate?

there seems to be an opposite
to every situation
under the sun

for every good
we might see an evil
one would sorely hope
for every bad
there is at the very least one good
or more?

to outweigh the bad
to balance the scales
one must
view the world
from a perspective of

do's don'ts and deeds
one third by three concepts
equals a whole

concepts actioned creates
a definite outcome
a serious chain of events
can follow the climax of a dramatic work or deed,
which serves as a finale to the chosen actions
a conclusion if you will
the outcome fights to resolve the conflict of choice

in deed we perform an act
let not those deeds
be ruled by the
do's and the don'ts
but by love
by the desire to resolve

actions desire and love
one third by three concepts
equals a whole
a definite outcome
a resolution

tear down the fences
build strong communities

sadness and despair
is no different
to riches and fame
all are the result of actions
reverberating through the universe
establishing "norms"
building high fences

by design or intent?
let us not stand on the fence

there is more sadness and despair
than there are
happy hearts
there might be more poor of spirit and possessions
than there is
contentment in wealth

do the math

the numbers are with us
we can win
