This is where I am this morning – where ever it may be:
When I can’t lift my feet to move out of the bed and wonder
Why there is another morning
My mind turns to the men and the women who have given
Their limbs, their lives,
To defend career politicians
Each time before a plunder or a war, they permeates our minds,
With hatred contempt, and wasted time spend hating the whole world blind.
He never knew why the hatred current raged,
He never knew why his directive was to become engaged
To kill at will, to find and maim, he was taught to be loyal to our country,
His efforts would keep us free.
They lied to our children, they lied to us, now we are seated in a
Place of ill trust. Bleed the workers dry. Let the sluffers lie.
When I try to walk and the pain shoots through my leg like a bullet,
I remember I have never seen bullets fly.
I have never seen the blood of a stranger I had to kill.
These men and women so valiantly stand, while the politicians
Just smile and put out their hand.
I want a trip, time off with the family, take your guns away, but
My guard is a dandy.
Suits and ties cover lies for a while, a band of white teeth
Spread across a smiling face, why it is our politicians,
Cheating on wives, lying to our faces, writing bad checks, they still have their places.
Why shouldn’t they smile they have it all, had millions to spend on elections, and now
Everything is tfor them for free – dash the salary. Who needs it?
This is scattered like my emotions. My pain is overwhelming; I cannot even imagine the courage of this brave group of souls who are guardians to our nation. They give
Limbs and lives believing they are protecting the sovereignty of our beautiful nation,
While elected officials, all along, plan their vacation.
Centered I must be now and face my pain. Faith carries me to where I must go, though where it may be, I simply don’t know. My heart and my prayers and my gratitude to all who have died – and to those who suffer far more than me, for to live in continuous
pain and anguish is the hardest of all, these young men and women, these babes from our arms sent to war after war.
While the cronies laugh amongst themselves, reveling in their power and might, the people, we know – something’s not right. It must change. No more wars, no more
playing of the world like a monopoly game.
I wonder what would happen if each one in power was to find themselves required to send one son or daughter to the front lines of a war. Required to watch as they come
home without limbs or in a body bag. Do you think this would open their eyes.
Do you know there is only a VERY TINY percentage of men and women in our congress now who have served in the armed forces? They don’t feel our pain, our poverty, our loss. They don’t care, I swear.
The band of citizens is growing in numbers – a group united by God and living souls.
There will be a time of remorse to many, but their time will have passed.
I still believe in the power of one person to make a difference. You will have a domino effect on those in the circle of your life. The world’s peoples are growing impatient with the greedy bastards. Power with love and what is right. Never give up or give in. I won’t – I promise.
