~ lessons ~
They say those who don’t learn the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them. But what if the leaders aren’t readers or heeders of lessons before me, don’t follow suggestions, flip-flop professions, and don’t think the people need them. Then the cycles continue to plague the earth, though there are those who know the lessons, their worth, and see the patterns, barking at the wind and holding tightly to lanterns. We live in a fallen world, scattered, and it doesn’t matter who just truthfully ranted. Because, what they’re chanting against isn’t yet ready to be beaten.
