Three profound words

Consumed by power

A human folly.

  1. Sadly humans the world over are like this.

  2. The fortunate thing is that not every human is consumed by power. Yet again, another thought-provoking poem, Iris — thank you so much.

    • The complexities of human behaviour, relationships, have such a profound impact on people… seen in some of the problems of society today. Thank you, Lana. Yes, there is always a choice and time to think things through… appreciate your time here.

    • Yes, as humans we are fallible. Some are more vulnerable than others so we can try to extend ourselves and give support in one or more ways…. that I believe will help to alleviate some pain for the hurting. Some playwrights write about their own experiences in life… to share about human relationships…. the realities of life. Thank you for your thoughts, Greg.

      • In a world increasingly shadowed by instances of bigotry, bile, ignorance and intolerance I agree that we all must do what little we can to keep the flame lit – I never believed that we would start the descent into darkness again and I’ve never seen the UK, where I live, more divided than today 😦
