Nationalism Is idealism And self-deception, Breeding hate And xenophobia, As well as fear And also contempt, Nationalism is a virus Infecting the vulnerable, The poorly informed And educated, With no empathy at all, Nationalism is a plague Used by despots who rule.

Divided sides

‘Better a gay monster than a sentimental bore.’ Voltaire. Truth is to be happy now Than dwelling in the past, And dreaming of how things once were Rather than how they can be, Society has become divided now, between man the beast of prey, And between man the utopian ideal being, The first is cruelContinue reading “Divided sides”

Bad decisions

We make bad decisions At some time But that’s not us defined, We choose sometimes To go down the wrong path But these bad decisions never last, So don’t beat yourself up about it Look for ways that you can change or learn from this, Don’t feel somehow maybe you’ve failed Because bad decision weContinue reading “Bad decisions”
