understanding

understanding hearts is what the 
world needs to today in its tangle
of broken dreams.

dreams are what life is
made of america
expounds as we
never stop to taste the
sweetness
of the corn that
fills our bellys.

"make a bigger, brighter step
for all mankind." WE WHINE.

yet we never appreciate the ones
we have crushed in our climb.

"we will be the first in every nation", we
exclaim......

forgetting that the first usually dies
earliest in most every game.

    How right you are, Janetta! It's the ones on the front lines who die first and we often neglect to display understanding and humility. Excellent Poem. Love, Carolyn
