The same doors?

Not every thief is a criminal

but every criminal is a thief.

Not every liar is dishonest

but everyone dishonest is a liar.

Not every poor-man is a beggar

but every beggar is a poor-man.

Not every wealthy man is greedy

but every greedy man is wealthy.

Not everyone educated is wise

but every one wise is educated.

Not everyone asleep is sleeping

but everyone sleeping is asleep.

Not everyone who is hurt understands

but everyone who understands hurts.

Not every opinion is wrong

but everything wrong is an opinion.

Not everyone has chains

but every chain is linked.

Not every door leads to the same person

but every person leads to the same door.

Emptiness

In the gray of nothingness

emptiness hands her gifts wrapped barrenly,

exposing the ills of a human heart until accountability is met, setting free the self imprisoned.

All deeds done, will be meet by the being of nothingness exposing the stain of goodness, what is truly of good can be given without expected recompense.

All that is nonexistent, exists.

All that is of an ending, begins.

All that is lonely will grow to become truly complete.

Some that has been lost will remain gone, absorbed into empties box for not all lost should be found.

All forgotten will be remembered, images haunting the mind will demand peace be made, setting the afflicted free.

Nothingness will weigh the unbalanced, emptiness will balance the wings.

Emptiness will bring to life the silence hidden in every spoken word handing truth to the weary.

All is naked before and within nothingness and emptiness,

all is born and reborn

all wisdoms are unclothed for there are no shadows to hide within.

UBI

It is not who will have to live under the policy of UBI but rather who is exempt.

I have watched Hartford fail(bankrupt)and now Chicago. Chicago may become the largest city in the USA to try UBI.

If UBI is good enough for your middle worker/average families it should be good enough for our politicians.

Any politician pushing for UBI they themselves should have to live under, their kids and spouses should be handed a basic monthly income also. No exemptions..

No more handing down laws that our leaders are exempt from.

Justice and injustice

“All injustices began in the name of justice.”

There are moments when injustice will show as justice.

As rumor spreads of a possible civil war in America through a demand for justice and equality(among other things),

will it be so?

Can true justice and equality thrive in a country of chaos and bipolar politics?

The streets will be filled and are with cries “no justice, no peace!”

Cries from a country that knows war and has yet to see peace,

Cries of justice from a country that funds injustice.

We know neither peace nor justice well.

I have wrestled with this thought many nights and have come to the conclusion,

social justice holds social injustice under the guise “for the common good”

but who determines what the common good is?

by whose standards?

In our current society separations

between right and left escalate

and

if one fails to agree with the collective narrative

you are unjust, there is no discussion

so,

has social justice become an excuse for state control,

for arrogance and a broad show of narcissism that all agree and conform to this supreme thought?

Are men and women that incapable of being just and holding justice without injustice at its root?

Upon the examining of my own heart

I have meet both justice and injustice.

I have stood for justice and unjustly hoped for benefit.

I have read of social plights but only those that have supported my view.

I have stood for the common good but yet have found utter corruption at the root.

Justice is not the problem nor is injustice

for both are needed

justice for those treated wrongly,

injustice for those treated favorably.

Men and women have taken a balanced system and corrupted her

eyes

ears

sight

balances

Justice itself cannot be corrupt unless men and women fill her with injustice.

I have seen more iniquity in justice and in its name than in injustice,

as I have found more moral blindness

and wickedness in something as beautiful as compassion

for there are true forms and false.

Dare I ask in our current social environment

a question to part with,

is it just to treat everyone as equals,

to treat those unequal as equal

to treat those equal as unequal?

Would we not benefit from a system that sees what is equal and unequal

and upholds both,

in society that may function equally according to their own talents?

So in closing if we were not afraid to

examine our own hearts

we would see

most injustices began with justice.

A parting thought,

If injustices prevail and dominate socially does injustice now become justice?
