A lovely tale told with excellent poetical skill. The moral of beware how you treat others, else the repercussions is a good one. These days there is too much said over social media that harms. Somehow these people have no morals about treating others like would like to be treated yourself. Perhaps being read to at night stories such as this by parents who believed in them too, and taught by example this world would be a different place.
Thank you Em and Michael very much for your kind comments and feedback.
I was brought up to be true to my inner core of honour. To be honest and stay true to myself no matter what the consequence. To do the best I could at every task set and be helpful and supportive to others when ever possible. This has formed the mantra for my life's journey and has helped me through all the good and bad times.
Sadly in this world there are some people who cannot conceive of beauty or goodness in others because they are fuelled by their own internal inadequacies and concerned only with their own personal gain. They could no more conceive that there is another more positive way of viewing life and behavior than walk to the moon and back.
One of the things that I love about Poetry and Quotes is how many lovely members I have come to know. Who not only share their poetry but also go out of their way to be helpful and supportive to other members through comments discussions and private messaging
It is a place where I have been made to feel welcome, inspired and supported and what's equally important to me - given me the opportunity to return back out into the community as much help and support that I can.
Hello Milly, a great write and strong message we all can relate to. I don't believe in this eye for an eye or seeking revenge on someone that did me wrong. No matter what we do God does not like ugly and it will come back often when almost forgotten. Being mean and spiteful because of what has been done to us is no excuse to mistreat others. I learned to forgive and keep praying. Take care and all the best
Thank you Dagmar for taking the time out to comment. Forgiveness is often hard especially when people are unreasonably nasty or unkind that's why I believe strongly in the fact that all that is 'Right and good' will prevail perhaps not immediately but eventually. take care Milly x
