Children gunning and laboring.
Drugs and education illicit.
Streets abhorrent with torture and ignorant shame.
Politics the satire and voting abolished.
Quiet voices and raging emotions stir the pot of immigration.
Strong and brave is silent as a 20's cinema.
Liquor and cigarettes cancerous wounds never to heal the youth.
Dying for clothes and ego born assumptions.
Life's a void of yesteryear childhood and forgotten joy.
Never to beat the heart of men, but the bomb of terrorism.
Waiting patient are the meek to change and inherit the Earth.
Brave still are the sacrifice of love to what we hold dear.
United under God.. one nation.
Standing tall and walking the test of time to preserve the heart of human experience in this our spiritual quest.
