As a Poet I write what others feel;
for the hungry knowing not their next meal,

its been put on their heart
to protect this land
i'm against war,
but their dedication i do understand...

they deserve more than respect,
this country, for them, should do more,
such a small percentage protecting us,
opened for them should be freedoms every door...

looking into the eyes of the many,
so many different stories to be told,
life lived through each breath,
each one of us a precious gift to the other,
to live as sister and brother...

ive eaten of every fruit life has to offer,
bittersweet was much of its fill,
taste testing all that shouldnt be,
nothing was able to set this soul free...

watching everything around me burning down,
listening to silence screaming out its hollowed sound...

theyve been preaching the end of time before mine began,
two thousand & thirteen years ago is when they started this plan.

the same number when counting a far away star.
what have we become,
when few are the some...?

none has offered true love serene.
i could care less what ive gone thru,
dying is my day due,
none had to walk in this shoe,
born are the many, reborn are the few.
