The Virtuous Achievers

Poem By Deborah Loraine Kean

The world is not enough
But it's plenty, for most people
Over much, some would say
They are a thin, clever hard people
Who preach the virtues of being tough

Comments about The Virtuous Achievers

Being tough? Well the response of that is toughness isn't it? World is not enough, probably for some people, problems are rising all over, it is a crazy world, just need to fit in. Sincerely
Virtues often fall into the catagory of, 'do as I say, not as I do.' Admire the virtuous man, but watch your back. I really liked this one very much.

That is enough for some
But not for me

Are heading for the Persian Gulf, to be there

Sunset On The Sea

Under the arch
Forward into the future

She was a skater girl
She was herself

Falling In Love

Is very Hell
That's my considered opinion

Taking The Long View

One day we will stand
Having run, and striven and fought
We've seen all that we planned
Quickly come to nought
