You were simply being a: You were simply being a compassionate being. I am not religious but highly spiritual. The principle is love contrasted by hate - negative and positive and choice as we do not have the power of choice with out the contrast nor the ability to use compassion with out the history we've lived allowing us the gift of foresight. Just be you. Be authentic. Be your better self. The rest will work out fine regardless humans said subscribe to one and create rules as the gain power offering promise and hope in the realm of the unknown.  The spiritual walk without any need of this. What is good is good. What is bad invariably shows its self in the end as it is too vain to lie humble without credit. Blessings to you :)

God is nothing. He is our: God is nothing. He is our attempt to fill the nothingness within us. god didn't create man. Man created god. Man wants to be like god, because man wants to be nothing.

I acknowledge how you feel: I acknowledge how you feel about it, sir, but I will cite several contrary authorities:  the Apostle Saint Paul's quotation of the pagan poet, Aratus, in his speech before the Areaopagus; the quotations from Homer and Apollonius Rhodius in Vergil's poem, The Aeneid; the several quotations of troubadour poets in Dante's poem, Divina Commedia; massive quotations to classical authors in the epic poems of John Milton and of Alexander Pope; quotations to classical authors in the several dramatic monologues of Robert Browning; and the footnoted quotations in T. S. Eliot's poem, The Waste Land.  Until these authorities are overturned, I do not think quotation of other sources can be considered lacking originality of thought or form.    I will also add a quotation I rely upon heavily when I post poems:  γέγραφα, γέγραφα.    Just saying . . .

Sir . . . I did not at any: Sir . . . I did not at any time mention that the poem was written to or about me.  I apologize if it seemed that I was thinking that.  I had only meant to write a good, encouraging comment.  Apparently, I failed.  I am now unable to delete it from my side, so please feel free to remove it.  I will be more circumspect in what I comment going forward.

Death-bed Flowers: I am not sure that I really understand this poem nor do I need an explanation beacause as a Poet I can feel a good poem simply by the flow of the words and the evoking of certain emotions by tha wording.  Your poem has this attribute. In case you aren't sure, that was indeed a high compliment.   ---  Stephen

Carcass commented on: Minimum Wage by Carcass 7 hours 6 min ago
This is about the wage gap. I: This is about the wage gap. I can't tell you how many times rich people just rub their richness in people's faces when the homeless population increases. Just in my city alone, the homeless population increased 20% and what do they build right next to their only shelter? Massive fucking condos that cost $5 million to buy.  On top of that, they complain about the homeless population and want to move the shelter away from the city.  Greed knows no humanity.

Jealous: Maybe a little jealous of them?  I live a simple ife in a mobile home in the country.  It is pretty ok for me. Anyway, I judge poems not by their content but by their poetic styling.  This was a nice write from a poetic point of view.   ----  Stephen

God:   As John Scotus Erigena put it to Frankish king Charles the Bald in the year 840 AD, "We know not what God is. God himself doesn't know what He is because He is not anything. Literally God is not, because He transcends being."
