Some things fit

Some things fit
And others don’t;
Only you can tell
For your very self.

What did fit once
May not fit now;
And what did not
May now maybe.

Beyond possibilities
The very realities
Of a one and only
Soul and self.

A seeking stranger
A strange seeker
Finding the good
The good finder.

Good, not better!
Better is worse.
What is best?

The Cyrus Charter

The fragments of the Cyrus Cylinder from the 6th century BC honor the Persian king Cyrus the Great, founder of the Achaemenid empire. Many historians regard this cylinder as early or first declaration of human rights. Here is a translation or interpretation of a portion of it:

“Everyone shall live according to his religion, respect women, and help the poor. Everyone may speak the language of his tribe. Only with human values can you be human. … To break the chains…, the freedom of the slaves, and honoring the elders is my wish.”
