A Poem by Tate Morgan

Tate and I

Whatever men say in blindness

or in spite of fancies of youth

Nothing's so kingly as kindness

while nothing's so royal as truth



We get back mete as we measure

one cannot do wrong and be right

Nor deal in pain to bring pleasure

for justice avenges each slight



So to the sting of his troubles

whose earnings are less than his worth

He who shares kindness be noble

despite the misfortunes of birth

Woefully, I think we've all experienced how social discourse has devolved to new lows while basic kindness & decency can be out of fashion. Whenever I write a hopeful poem such as yours, at least a couple jaded reviewers express total disbelief that social discourse will ever be civil again. But I believe (as clearly you do, too) that writing poems like this (& I've noticed many of yours are about the basics of being a good person) can help infiltrate the air waves & maybe one day we'll reach critical mass & go back to our old hippie love days (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Wow this writing is so apropos with what's going on in the United Kingdom with Megan and Harry and the Queen and royalty very thoughtful. I found the word be Noble to be almost out of place and yet it sits in the highest seat well written

I agree my friend.
"So small are the stings of his troubles
whose earnings are less than his worth
He who shares kindness be noble
despite the misfortunes of birth"
The above lines. Great wisdom shared. Thank you for sharing the outstanding poetry.

Time reveals all truth for those that can decipher the difference. In the meantime, a simple, loving earnest life will suffice. Well put Tate, well put.

Tate, I almost sang your lines. The rhythm and rhyme are absolutely flawless! Wise words. If you do good in life, good will come to you....usually. Simple logic and yet so many people refuse to see it. A pleasure to read. Lydi**

Perfectly woven... such simple honest truth seem to escape so many these days...
... or they are just too self absorbed to realise the worthiness of kindness, honesty, compassion.
I enjoyed the heart in this. Thank you.

On another note, I wonder why is it I cannot upload images when everyone else seems able?
