The Meek

By Scott Bailey © 2015


The weak shall inherit the earth
So it is written
Of course
When the strong are done with it
It will have lost its worth
A played out empty husk
A flooded desert
Then the meek can have it

One thought

  1. The strong often are self-deluded and self-destructive and do despoil many things for the meek. However, power men and women never grasp that the human spirit is beyond their reach. Compliance does not mean agreement, or their judgements equal to justice. The meek remain free because they do not counter-judge the strong, therefore, are not permanently bound in a co-dependent relationship. Oddly, the powerful are iften relationally the most powerless. Thanks!
