The Slope

How do we determine Good or Bad,
is it from what makes us happy,or what makes us feel sad?
How we truly know how to judge these two words?
Is it from what we've been taught or things that we've heard?
When we look at the situation we have at hand,
the balance of it might have an unknown plan.
Some things die and some things live.
Some people take and some people give.
Some people drink and some people quit.
But which of these things is the perfect fit?
Which things that we determine as good or bad now,
in the near or far future could be different somehow?
Allowing good things to prosper from things we call bad.
Allowing terrible things to happen from what made us glad.
The worst thing we have when judging these two reactions,
is we don't know the consequences from their present actions.

The Youtube below is a comical version of the sentiment of this poem.
