Why Deprive Me?

Peaceful Journey



Just something to think about:

I am thinking about the state of the nation. I have a question, “why deprive me to get what you want?” In other words, why should I give up my rights to give you your rights? Why if I stand on my morals and convictions, and you find it an offense, but I am required to give up what I stand for to make you comfortable to stand for what you want? Without a compromise, there is no equal exchange. I’m only giving up my rights to support your rights. Where is the liberty and justice for all? Where’s the equality? Why deprive me?

If I stand here in contemplation,

I’ll never get to where I’m going.

I could plan and never fail

because my plans are never a threat

for success nor failure.

My goals would remain only goals

because they are always something

to look forward to becoming.

I wculd find myself in complacency

if I find myself only contemplating.

Why bother having thoughts, ideas

or plans if my intentions

never follow through?

Why have dreams or want more

if I can never see myself achieving

what I desire?

At times it seems easier taking the path of

least resistance.

If I go that route I could settle for contentment.

But, then I’m like the lame man from birth

who sat at the gate called Beautiful


But, there are other alternatives,

I could do as he and move beyond

the place of “do nothing”

and “do something”

to exceed the expectation

of any limitations.

So, contemplation,

I’m not only contemplating

on leaving you behind.

I’m already gone.
