PEOPLE

 

We are who we are-

Whether we be made up

Of good or bad particles

Time & circumstances

That will wear whatever

It may----away.

It erases all in the end.

 

Children still dying, 

People going hungry,

Wars and killings, destruction

And lying.

Diseases too numerous to

Write on this page.

Pollution still with us

We’ve trapped and incased.

Raping & muggings and

Gang fights go on.

Bag ladies and drunkards

Con men who sing you a song.

Lesbians, Gays and

The sorts of their kind.

Deaf and mutes and

Those who are blind.

Dopers and baby killers

With needles in hand.

 

HOW CAN ANY OF US BEGIN TO MAKE A STAND?

 

This nation was built

On someone else's dreams

Yet in the distance I can

Hear yet another scream.

Crying, clinging, and gasping

For air.

Torture, misfortune and always

Despair.

DOESN'T ANYBODY REALLY CARE?

Bleeding and grieving for

Those we have lost.

Though we keep going

No matter the cost.

When will it end

This mighty freedom we have.

Maybe to stop-

And then-

Start all over again.

 

IN THE BEGINNING GOD CREATED THE HEAVENS

AND THE EARTH.............
