Freedom Cries (for you and me)

can these words I write today,
be heard by those who make us pay
in blood and money for their sins,

and still be heard above the din
of press imbedded deep within
the walls too thick to hear the cries
of torture victims, ruined lives,

across this Country we call 'Free'
majority, we disagree,
with brutal, heartless policies,

now voices, yours, yes you and me,
if you stand and disagree,
they'll come for you in black sedans

your name they'll take, identity,
no trace of you will searchers see

so stand and fight for this great land,
in 'God We Trust' .....set us free!

    Nice poem James. Your right it is quiote similar to mine. Brothers in rhyme. Sorry it took me so long to get to your poems. Having computer problems but hopefully thats over. Lots of good writes in here. It's hard to get words from your emotions but you obviously write from the heart. God bless and thanks for inviting me to browse the Goff library. Allan G

    Hey Jim, thanks for comments on Stimulus Plan, I think its fair to say I am always an optimist because I believe ... right now the world needs hope because every stimulus provides a response ... and so far without faith we will doubt the that dawn is hidden inthe night of the response. These are troubling days of history my friend. Your last verse is what I am trying to incite.

    I love the lines "...They'll come for you in black sedans..." There are probably a lot of people, myself included, afraid to stand up and speak out. We live in a free country and that is good because we are free to free ourselves from within. And to me, that is the best freedom. Hummmm. Your poem made me think...Thank you for the thoughts. Keep up the insightful writes. Thank you for your comments, too.

    In God I do trust, can't say that for this country too much anymore. Seems we are letting the ACLU dictate what they want us to hear, Blessings my friend, Ron
