(February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)

Its Significance

Substance and its significance,
Is as nonexistent as expressed courtesy.
Consideration shown like that for others is rare.
Forget expecting the exchange of respect.
Some people immediately believe this to be weakness.
Few are committed to truth or the strength of kept honesty.
To be attached to devotion, loyalty and integrity is suspect

The teaching of discipline and having depth of self-respect,
Has been put to death by impressions one leaves...
With an intent of attention to get.
To first be addressed by a presentation of materialism.
People have become indebted to giving it their credit.
And bragging on their rated scores,
Before knowing someone's name to remember it.

Perhaps being blessed to reflect on past decades survived,
And the rapid changes witnessed...
One who has lived has a higher expectation,
Than those who have become addicted to nonsense and trivia.
And minds absorbed in nonsense and trivia are easily offended,
By the ones who question their absence of purpose and low motives.

Substance and its significance,
Is as nonexistent as expressed courtesy.
Consideration shown like that for others is rare.
Forget expecting the exchange of respect.
Some people immediately believe this to be weakness.
And today...
Minds obsessed over what is possessed effectively,
Are the ones clearly weakened and mentally affected.
