Good morning and welcome to this week’s Poetry Corner featuring Theodore Ficklestein. 🙂
Are we all so full of hate that racism has taken over?
Did the economy get the best of us?
Maybe we are too dumb to keep up with the rest of the world.
This is not an issue of race, or hate, or money or education.
But of trust.
We don’t know who is telling the truth anymore.
Who are the good guys?
Who are the bad guys?
We hear truths and speculate lies.
We hear lies and speculate truth.
Never are we sure that the information given to us is genuine and real.
From TV to books to newspaper.
We don’t know whose side to trust.
And the thing that really gets us is how they all act like truth givers calling out the opponent as fakes.
“That man over there is wrong. Listen to me.”
We don’t trust those whose job it is to provide information on events that can change our lives.
As long as this is the case we can never make progress since we will be too busy questioning the integrity of the information to which we are given.
Awesome poem, Theodore! Thank you for sharing! 🙂
