there are different types of corruption. that of the self, eg moral corruption. a person can be corrupted if easily led by a manipulative person to do something for the other's gain. then there is financial corruption or graft. this is prevalent in communist nations, partly why the commies failed. a man digging a hole in the world gets the same wage as a man making mig planes. they row. the digger claims he physically works harder. mig man says he uses his head. no1 wins there. so the digger sneakily bucks the system and sells building supplies from his boss on the side, thus making extra undeclared cash and being corrupt. there are many examples in the media, around us personally and nationally on a country wide level. the corruption i indicated in my piece is based on an appointment system which can be manipulated and thus is corrupt. i added shall we say some extras.

This is wonderful, Terry.
'...an old girl

Beautifully expressed.
I do agree with Brian though; I think the importance of the words would be served by spacing a little... but I enjoy it just as it is, too.

It was more of a joke but it's true it's more sane to be aggressive . If you live in an environment in which you get angry all the time . And even some studies found that it can be very beneficial to kill a person you hate so much . Of course if killing a person was morally acceptable. It can help you reduce anger stress and even gain control over your life . But anyway I imagine my self hitting a Lot of people but I can't do it in real . It's too much troublesome

Hey Racha,

I was going to send you an article on the correlation of the amygdala to aggressive response, since you are a psychology student. But, the first article I came upon mentioned the "abnormal" aggressive response of a driver to a tailgater. I believe that the tailgater is the "abnormal" one since it's his face I can see in my rearview at 70 miles per hour (about 113 km/h for you Europeans and well, the rest of the world). Yet it's people like me who are being studied since stupidity seems so normal--go figure.

Please pardon if this response makes little sense, but physical violence is never truly out of the question in extreme situations.

Rachel

PS
Forgive me for ignoring your original intent. As good or needed as it may be, closure is hard to come by because it can mean making many changes, both in mentality and environment. We all make our journeys. Good to hear from you and take good care.

Corruption is the evil that is mortgaged from the most precious of our possessions. It could be your child, mother or partner in exchange for every wrong act you do at the expense of others. Hence I believe that the corrupt are digging their grave. So relax.

I love a piece of writing that is not rooted in any one particular decade or century. This has an almost timeless quality which is delightful. I suppose the buying of a silver necklace does tie it down to the last 200 years but I'm sure its time is probably more recent. And Whitby is such a wonderful setting for poetry. Thanks for posting Chris.

Thanks Cynthia for commenting. I'm so glad you put this on that level. Very kind of you. I suppose it's the last lines that draw us in, hopefully. It's just hitting the spot with a reader and if that happens, so rewarding to hear from such as yourself ! I wasn't sure which Twilight poem you meant; was it by Sarah Teasdale? I'd love to know.

We do all that we can
And become fan
Of world's luxury
We work hard and pray an almighty

Life's most of the time goes on such quest
And we leave nothing behind to achieve the best
We get what we desire
Even if whole life goes on fire

We are, after all, human beings
And try to bring
Whatever is within reach
Life moves ahead as such

Just to hopefully close this large tome David. I can see what you are getting at and why. The greater mystery for me is having a brother who has devoted so much of his life to the Church without once him and me having a conversation about his beliefs. That says it all for me.
Thanks for sticking with this mate.

Hi Frances,

I love the way you have constructed this and cleverly knitted the words together, as you would lovingly create a garment for a cherished one.

I'm rubbish with Haiku, and not generally a fan but this is a wonderful, thoughtful and hand crafted piece of writing.

Blimey, you even had me googling Knitting terms.

It also reminded me of my Grandmother who was rarely seen not knitting.

Such love in this.

David.
