Splendid.

To sum it up, one who masters the art of balance, will get the best of out of this world.
However, humans do make mistakes, and we are better because of it.

Please ignore if you still don't feel so as may be we have different thoughts relating to these lines


I think what it means by "kind but not dishonest" is that at times we can be dishonest in an attempt to be kind, like when you're polite or kind to someone but you really don't respect them or respect the choices they make, yet in order to be kind and not mean you don't say anything so you're being fake... Dishonest... And to treat your flesh like your temple but not your true self is saying we are more than just our flesh, what you see in the flesh isn't who we are.

Can I come in please?
1 I also had a problem with this. Is it that we should try to be kind without having lie about anything.
2 This is a warning that it is good to care for our bodies but should bear in mind that they are destructible and that our true self is our soul/spirit which lasts for ever.

I was unexpectedly moved by this. Scott, you have managed to encapsulate timeless thoughts with today's ideas and perceptions. There is an unexpected spirituality which appeals to me enormously and, in this respect were not fearful that some might think it dated and not relevant to life as we live it today.
It is however, very relevant although demonstrating timeless principles.
Liked it very much indeed. Thank you.

Very nice poem this poem is true representation good and bad human emotions. It tells us about hope ,about trying to be good. It is hope of rising from ashes.

Some provocative, challenging and convicting thought. Also equally flighty and confusing. Worth re-reading for those deeper ideas.
