MORE and LESS

The words ‘more’ and ‘less’
capture the imagination;
being relative to most anything,
but denying totality of success.

Each person is ‘more’ in some way,
and always ‘less’ in others –
if only in their own perception
or duality of nature.

This ability to rank and order
sets us apart as human;
though the necessity questionable.

MORE or LESS

This common but self-abasing
statement of accountability
is a lazy by-word of many –

MORE or LESS interested in
politics, religion,
ecology or philosophy –

but unwilling to get beyond believing
into actually doing,
or knowing,
or being …

but that is a judgment too
that you could be ‘more’,
or somehow ‘less’
than I would choose.

MORE than LESS

Self-proclaimed leaders
would have you be absolute,
unto blind obedience,
about a cause, crusade or passion …

a cultist view
of politics, religion and all,
which is always destructive —
more than less …

Consider a far gentler world in which
a statement of inclusion such as:
‘Christian’ or ‘liberal’
simply meant
MORE than LESS,
with room for growing.


MORE of LESS

‘tis said that happiness
comes from contentment with what you have
rather than pursuit of having more …

yet, those who find awe
in simple things –
even innocence,
will always have more …

and “of what” not a valid question,
but an answer –

for those who understand need no explanation,
and those who do not,
none suffice.

MORE from LESS

Pity those who embrace
the limits of their world
as defining the universe …

and weep for they who imagine more
but accept less by decree of others …

run from those who cry ‘more’
while doing little to improve themselves …

and honor those who create –
making more of everything they touch,
accepting nothing less
from living.
