Excessive expectations……..Daily Prompt

“Perhaps too much of everything is as bad as too little.” – Edna Ferber
Do you agree with this statement on excess?

They say..
excess in anything..
is a sort of shortcoming..
I say..
doesn’t it depend..
on the present surrounding..

An excessive need..
of love and compassion..
to negate..
hatred and cruel intentions..
a want of realization
why this unfair distribution..
every damn thing on Earth..
divided and quartered and destroyed
are we the supreme beings..
at the apex of every ecosystem..
doesn’t every other creature here..
have a right of living..
how then can we drive them..
to be extinct..

I ask you my friends..
Is this too much expectation..
to touch your hearts..
and remember our honour and integrity..
as human beings..
