CAN DO

As I arise to face a new day
  The governments in foul play.
Taxation is a total drain
  Crime is a money gain
Pollution clouds my membrane
  Healthcare is a crying shame
Love can be a constant pain
  Hatred may never end.

You ask me what, I CAN DO
   I measure life as you do to.
To de-value one's life, is everyones issue
  Reguardless of circumstantial views.
Put yourself in someone elses shoe's
  It may very well, oneday be you.

Blaming, fighting, fear & pain
  We all know it, there's nothing to gain.
No sense in crying, establishment blues
  It only feeds the anger, we fuel
Its human nature, win or lose
  Chose not to be like them
Love unconditionally thats your tool.

You ask me what I CAN DO.
  I measure life as you do to
Theres only so much one can do
  To acknowledge & challenge, for change
Is the power within you.
Responsibility lies, in what we CAN DO
  When time to give, gift with a open heart
A peaceful demeanor, is a pure start...

    Great write Cherie, I like reading and writing that kind of stuff, and airing ones voice. Wonderful stuff. Only one thing it is not human nature, it is what we have made ourselves. One's true nature is so very beautiful....Peter

    Thats so true Peter....it isn't what we are intended to be!!:( It isn't human nature but I guess being a product of environment, we not meaning everyone tend to, go along with the wrongs instead of challenging for the rights. We do have such beauty!!!:) Love your insightful comment peaceful journey always, my friend cheriex

    'Heavens Messiah,' Gave With His Life; As The World Hated Him Because Of His Condemning It's Evil Ways As Deeds ?

    Good ideas in this one , to have a positive outlook and give love. It's getting kind of hard for me not to feel stressed out about health care, etc. It's so easy for people to talk against universal health care when they already have good health plans from their jobs. I hope the world can work together for the benefit of all mankind.
