The Solution

Eyes without vision,
Minds without thoughts,
Bodies moving like zombies,
Living,but playing no part,

Following bad company,
Wasting precious time,
Another great young life,
Charged for murder,numerous crimes,

Living a cruel,bloody life,
Leaving many in sorrow,
Flash-back,things you have done,
Makes you afraid of the shadows,

Possessive in love,
Consumed by greed, 
Controlled by anger,
The ALMIGHTY,is what you need...

    Would you read between you and me of mine. It talks about your last stanza in my way. Your last line is so full of hope. And so much wisdom in the rest. Take Care.

    recognizing that Love is a greater power than ego or anger and ambition has helped me to become indomitable regarding the defiling influence of rage & greed Rich - your poem reminds me of my blessings, my strengths, and the weaknesses that I trust I can overcome - J.A.B.

    don't trust you can overcome,OVERCOME J.A.B

    Thank you Richard for your kind comment on my poem about home. It really is sad ... about my husband's funeral. On the subject of sad, Solution certainly fits in intensely. Your last line offers lots of help whether you call it God, Higher Power, or the Almighty. I have to remember I'm really not in charge. Great poem. love, Kathy
