My two cents

The Slope We Slide Down

It's not enough to quote Micah 4:4.
It takes more than a phrase 
We seek harm to none
to erase the harm that is done 
being donein the name of justice.
Words don't cut it. It's a fact. It just is.

How can we hope for the Light
when we delight in staring at our own reflection
thinking, "It might not be perfection, but it's close,
and those—the others—if only they could be
like us  righteous..."? How can we see
we are about to fall
when all we care for is mirrors?

Careful  humans make errors.
When you set forth ill-equipped with pride,
watch your step  it's slippery outside.
