Special Feature Collaborative Poem--By Ken Allan Dronsfield and Blanca Alicia Garza--United States

In Balance

By Ken Allan Dronsfield and Blanca Alicia Garza

Always seek to have eyes
that find the best in people;
A heart that can forgive the worst;
An inner light to help guide one 
through the darkest of nights;
A mind that shall disregard the bad;
A spirit that accepts the harsh lessons;
A temper that shall remain restrained;
And a soul that never loses faith.
For the longer I walk this Earth,
the more my heart weeps
for the injustice I've seen.

  8. Thank you, Isha, for the following--

    Two excellent writers expressing so well the dilemmas of human nature, reminding us to always do the right thing, to forgive, to ignore the bad, to find the best, all measured against what sometimes seems to be the impossibility of practicing such "nobility" within the paradigm of our existence.

    Yours sincerely,
    Isha Wagner
