The Absolute Gift - by Bob Atkinson

The Absolute Gift
(c)2015 Bob Atkinson

about time we stood our ground
in this era of feigned validity
where some with guns shoot their friends
for being of another creed

so simple an observation's not much
to hang another by the neck
removing validity from a cause
by showing lack of respect

they beg only one idea
be put forth for the truth
but to force those of lesser strength
to adopt another's attitude

by force of gun or bomb
removes validity from their cause
and gives us pause to reflect
who we ever are

don't take from me my freedom
should revel in my cause
to find truth in all I do
herein displayed because

because truth's not always evident
even though you're told it is
nobody knows the absolute
absolute's not a gift that gives
