From infancy to death we make judgments–
Like over like, dislike – precedents:
good-bad, better-worse, wrong-right decisions,
wanting to please, choosing choice ingredients.
Placing values on life with precision
thinking only of order or scission,
not understanding that through those patterns,
our sorting leads us to firm conclusions.
Framed by family mores and concerns;
by fears real, imagined, sensed or learned,
we form blocks, create deep prejudices
and day by year we act on thoughts discerned.
Order results from informed appraises;
Chaos may rise from strong imbalances.
Each action has affecting repercussions,
We must judge with clear, well-thought perceptions.
