I pray for peace

blame, put the blame in perspective 
turn the tables a bit
switch seats for a minute
feel the heat on your chest 
bullets are flying,
who pulled the trigger??
was race an issue?
what lies are we all buying into...
the media only focuses on "what makes a good story"
there's always a victim,
the truth is never really clear
and usually its a one sided story.. its only one side that we hear
People take to the streets,
many overreact... 
and sadly crap hits the fan before they get the facts
who's to blame... who should be held responsible??
death.. destruction.. hatred overflows
As I sit here and watch the news
I pray for humanity all over the world... 
I pray for peace..
not just in my home... 
I pray for yours

The other side of Freedom

They said they loved me.
 Then, the metal beasts came, soaring over me
 Heaping dust and blood on our city streets,
 As their lethal load hit like rain sheets. 

I watched their love puncture the city walls
 And sever the sinews off the boy and his ball
 Leaving the mother crying for her son, then his dad
 Till her tears meant nothing in the wailing myriad. 

I saw the hate build with each blood drop
 Drawn from the soldiers and innocent. Drop
 For drop, survivors intend revenge upon this love shown:
 This false love which spurs only hate till we’re all gone.

NEHEMIAH

                                                          by BambiLynn'14  
  Daddy, Daddy! I didn't mean to go!
  I ran away from it happening! Didn't make it tho...
  My mother, friends, family~didn't know, I was too young.
  That trouble would find me in guise of a gun...
  I can see you, I can hear all you never got to say.
  My body gave out, but in your heart I will stay.e
  In times when you need me,
I am here and you'll see~
that with God and my passing~
I SCREAM WITH ALL EVERLASTING!
NO MORE GUNS! NO MORE SILENCE!
   0 TOLERANCE  0 VIOLENCE
                             NEHEMIAH
          (inspired by the shooting and death of a NORTHSIDE MINNEAPOLIS teenager)
