Poem: What Is Your Motive?


What is your motive?
Are you acting in error or are you trying to trick me?
What did you conceive?
Do you plan to deceive or manipulate, out of conceit?

What is your motive?
Is it completely selfish or outrightly inconsiderate?
What do you expect?
Do you intend to fulfil your dream, while others suffer loss?

What is your motive?
Is it to create a massive gap that gives you so much leverage?
What have you designed?
Will it benefit us all or fulfil some selfish ideas?

What is your motive?
Are you interested in the common good or simply yourself?
What is your real plan?
To have everyone singing your praise after raising you up?

What is your motive?
Life isn’t competition, it is a collaboration.
What is your new dream?
Be a commendation in the world by working in love.

Rhetorical Questions In Poem: What Is Your Motive?


About teeceecounsel

Who am I really? Can that be defined yet? Probably by the time I'm long gone and all the pieces of my activities are compiled and analysed then you can know what you want to know about me. Meanwhile, I write. Not because I love writing but because I love people. I love to care and love to share. I'm a deep thinker and I love to believe in the impossible. The ideal is attainable and a shot at it must be given. Don't say 'It won't work' rather ask 'how will it work? Nobody is ever doomed unless they made the choice. To resist good and to adopt evil is already doom. To loose hope is to choose doom but to believe that every step is a passing phase leading towards your hope is to choose progress. I may go on and on but my posts say it all. I don't force you to agree, I only say enjoy!

    This is a really nice post. Had me reviewing myself and motives in some current decisions I’ve made. Thanks for sowing this seed of thought.

    • You are one man that I know, who values thought so much! Men who think, often advance beyond those who don’t. I am glad that these words got you pondering. I appreciate your encouraging words! 🙂
