Heavy Questions

What do you do when the world is against you?
When all you do is wrong no matter how right it is?
When every lie told about you is seen as true?
When your enemies increase despite your best intentions?

Do you capitulate and seek to appease them all?
Do you do your best to make the whole world happy?
Giving in to demand after demand no matter how unreasonable?
And ignore the effects on your home as it turns rundown and shabby?

Do you fight everyone everywhere they hide?
With words and weapons, making war on them all?
Justifying yourself saying “This we cannot abide”?
While really justifying your enemies one and all?

Maybe you can seek a middle ground?
Ignoring some, working with others, and making war on the last?
Working with the grim knowledge that there will always be enemies around?
Hoping that the world fins a new enemy fast?

But when the world is against you is any answer right?
Can any course set the matter straight?
Or will all you do be a simple and futile fight?
Any hope of peace being nothing more than a lure or bait?


  • Interesting poem.

    I'd suggest you remain faithful to your ideals and fight the urge to stand for your ideals in ways that violate those same ideals.

  • Although, starting first by re-evaluating your ideals would make sense.

    If ALL the world is truly against you, then your ideals may be evil or simply wrong. I'm sure Hitler may have felt the world was against him - he sure shouldn't have remained true to those ideals.

    Self-evaluation is always a good thing.
