No taste of victory

When lacking self-diminution -

Self-deflation invites

Soul-searching and contrition.


No armor of courage

Without abundant

Harvest of self-sacrifice...


No loyalty notion

While lacking

Gem of selfless devotion.


Love is abandoned

With no oblation

And unmitigated dedication.


Gaze at the Cross

Without Its Triumph,

All is a loss...


To conquer festering lies

To save grandeur of lives.

With gangrenous moral relapse,

Needed collectivity shall collapse.


Self-satisfied fragility -

Foster nurse of society's

Crooked path and rascality.


Ill-thought-out liberation -

Many shades of values cultivation

Cannot bring forth humanity's unification.


Unchecked passion and urges,

Untaught heart surges...

Shabbiness of ways and means

Father futility and vileness

Of events and ends!


Violence wears garments of lies,

Concealing flesh-creeping crimes;

Participants in diseased deceits,

Expanding deep ocean of gory misdeeds.



In malicious and volatile world,

On destruction brink,

Be brave!

Do not waste the ink!

Dear Dr. Kardas, "Look the Cross, without Its Triumph, all is a loss..." - this is the most quintessential Truth and reminder to ponder upon to save and restore our lives. And, indeed without selfless devotion, self-sacrifice and humility, there is no real life and thus no hope! Most essential truths written with careful skillfulness and eloquence. Dr. I assure you that there is neither wasting a line nor ink in your great poetry! It is always a spiritual banquet reading your work.

Dear Dr. K. Another smashing poem! Yes, I too believe this world is on the brink of destruction because of the millions of "spiritual deserters." The mates are sinking their own ships... without God they haven't a chance to survive the storms... Love the first stanza - deep meaning and original writing. Keep that pen moving! RG & Pals
