The news comes on again.  I open up my Bible.  "There is nothing new under the sun..." says the wisest.  

Why does it take a tragedy

for me to change my ways...
why must it take a travesty
for 'progress' in these days...
why must the basic laws of God
be totally ignored?
Is it because we've shunned The Word,
dismissing Christ the Lord?

Ten simple rules--they now become

'amendments...,' hints...requests?
With common sense and courtesy
each one of us is blessed.
But do we always use them?
Where is 'The Golden Rule?'
Does that expire the moment that
we graduate from school?

"The times, they are a-changin'...'

but is the human heart?
We MUST infuse God and His love
if true change is to start!
You are no better than I am.
I am no better than you!
If we could only realize this
imagine what we could do!!

'One step forward, three steps back.'  But it doesn't have to be this way!  Each of us have within us the capability to move forward, to get along and make progress.  We cannot be FORCED to, we must DECIDE in our hearts to.
