Take time, stop, and glance
at your true self
in the mirror of your soul.
See how narrow or wide is the gulf;
judge how far or near is the precipice,
and reckon how high you must abseil
if fallen over.
The ‘me’ and the ‘I’ difference
both regnal beings
and mere subjects,
leaders and followers
need to be checking
where they are at with themselves
and with others.
No ideas, no tenets- of potentates
or even of plebeians, can quite evolve
and closely looking , so as to move
more surefootedly and wisely-
for a more hopeful finality.
