To Be Born Anew


To Be Born Anew

The heads of state
sat studiously brooding over
the new confrontation;
perchance an answer lay buried,

Why should we, they pondered,
be for all things and all people
always a hundred per cent?

Only because
Conscience told them,
when you see it to be done,
it is yours to do.
The how and why of it
Discipline will determine.

Otherwise it remains undone
and the situation
will come back to bite you.
It has always been thus
to those who are well endowed,
with virtue unclaimed.

The obvious is a source of power
to the one who sees,
resting amongst a world still
waiting to be born anew.

There is always that hope.
