Attitude Problems

Attitude married with conceit:
Too mollycoddled to even see
Their personal unreality.

Attitude married with righteousness:
Too focused on right and wrong,
To see the world’s complexity.

Attitude married with greed:
When what you want
Overwhelms others’ needs.

Attitude married with fear:
All empathy is lost,
But cruelty is cleared.

Attitude married with acceptance:
Calm or defeat, it eases the pain
And takes away motivation for change.

Attitude married with judgment:
Making assumptions on others’ lives
Doesn’t help and is rarely right.

Attitude married with what
Will let us see each other’s
Pains, needs, and complexity
And work together to better
Our reality?
