Hero's

some of us are bows
and some are arrows
our purpose in life
maybe confused and narrow
but when we see the path 
before us
and target a world 
that cannot ignore us
when we strike a blow 
for what is right in our eyes
and let the world know
that we will not compremise
fighting for a cause
and willing to die
bows are drawn  
and arrows they fly
but who are the bows
and who are the arrows
he who has a dream 
and dare the world to follow
they who are willing
unafraid of the law
provoked by the wrong
and generations that suffered long
the bows see inequailit
but will not suffer silently
the arrow see's the cause
and has no need for the pause
something must be done 
to right the laws
who will be a hero
a bow or an arrow 
not just zero

    well that is the question Situation... There are many people with similar views I think...( and the main task.) For "World feeders" Oh did I make a mistake?? I mean "World leaders" would be to keep them as seperate as possible.. or so i've heard said..! Anyway enjoyed reading your view on things.."

    @John 'The Situation' Loving III -- How did I get such a 'Loving' surname wrong below? Maybe it was subconscious -- the absence of your good, 'Loving' ways. John 'The Situation Hating III would be a more apt name for you anyway. How long did you figure I would turn the other cheek before I started retaliating against you? Too bad some of the other poets that you prayed upon like a serial-rapist have since left this site. How long have you been a bully for now? How many years has it been? Long enough for many soupers, that's for sure....

    @John 'The Situation' Irving III' -- As I have already mentioned to you, I obviously had you blocked, but you continue to slither onto the replies of comments left on my poems. If someone blocks me, I respect their human right and freedom to do so. I do not infringe upon their human rights by forcing myself onto their poems via the reply section of other people's comments. YOU JUST WON'T STOP DOING IT, SO HERE I AM. As much as you see yourself as being morally superior, you are delusional, for your morals aren't saintly at all. Far from it.
