Moral, Lesson or Lifestyle

immoral, by whose
definition of moral
are we to decide


he is the lesson
Illegal drugs, addiction
a fast track to death


she follows the path
of character and wisdom
moral her compass

There must be a barometer of some sort otherwise the world will be a rotten place. What is rotten anyway? Food for thought. Wonderful take, Susan.`

I think its important to set and follow one's moral compass ~ Deep thoughts here Susie ~

Your first one seems to imply (or say outright!) that nothing is moral or immoral. At this point, I don't agree, but instead of rejecting the notion completely, I'll ponder it.

Moral Compass

@Nanka, Thank you.
@mindlovemisery, Thank you. Yes, truth comes from within.
@Panchali, Thank you
@Reading Pleasure,I have been burnt by those who judge my path when theirs is full of potholes
@Grace, Thank you.

@Magical Mystery Teacher, That was not my intention to imply nothing is moral or immoral. It merely raises the question of whose teachings you choose to follow and does it align with the spirit within.

Your first poem gives pause, for sure. I suspect that most humans(except perhaps, sociopaths) are equipped with a moral code which society reinforces and refines(hopefully) But your question opens up much food for thought!Who is (Im)moral?

Like most things in life, I agree that morals are relative... wonderfully crafted Susie :)

Beautiful and thoughtful, what is immoral today may be moral tomorrow..
