Reproductive Rights

by | Mar 20, 2021 | Philosophy

I’ve been called a liberal
Because of a given stand
The issue of abortion
Reproductive rights at hand

A judgment here is called for
And judgments, we have learned
Will be measured backward
To which I have concern

When I think of others
And the actions that they take
I wonder, do I have the right
To point to their mistakes?

“Sugar isn’t good for you,
You need to give it up
Exercise and meditate
Reduce coffee to a cup

Careful with your BMI
Fat can cause you trouble!”
Now. . . who am I to enter there?
We each live inside our bubble

We make our own decisions
From the material at hand
Our backlog of experience
And awareness in command

The variables are endless
Of thoughts that intervene. . .
We’re outside looking in
To the one who is between!

Grandma Linda is a squigily peg in a square hole. Her poetry is aimed at moving the world to love, unity and perfect margaritas. And after years of perfecting the art, she has the skill to paint a better world and make it so.

When she is not serving customers, gazing at rocks, or visiting her grandchildren Linda is writing poetry. And even during all the above activities she has been known to write still.
