Sunday Sonnet!



I ask not for the wherewithal to be
Within the transient corridors of gain,
Where greed corrodes all human dignity,
The soul of whom it ever can retain;
Denuded of his precious self-respect,
The captive to vain avarice succumbs,
His passage to perdition slides unchecked,
His epitaph nonentity becomes;
Much rather self-destructive quests forsake,
The more enduring values to preserve;
Do not the route to excess undertake,
And balance of the greater good unnerve!
Sufficiency sustains diurnal need,
A building block in every wholesome creed!

  2. A very appropriate sonnet for this week. We are witnessing some very unattractive traits of human kind played out in front of us each and every day….The image in this post is magnificent. Hope you are enjoying a lovely weekend…janet 🙂 xxx
