I am given to you by Creator Himself My Limbs long to grow straight and tall Bathed in sunlight from above, paying homage Fulfilling my God given task From the dawn of creation, in the Holy Books I’m told A gift was given to all nations to hold The Tree of Life to feed and cure and clothe. I am Me – Set me free To live in a world- your world, to be appreciated I am needed by you and the multitudes Use me, Recycle me again and again Plant me in your soil, I will take root I live to Heal you, to Cleanse you To Rebuild you to Purify you I am Me – Set me free Do not believe the lies in your ears they whisper Free me from my confined goal, Where troops have placed me Sullied my name, Denied the Existence of my core I am Me – Set me free Yet I am you, and you are me Vital it is for us living beings Your DNA and my RNA- we talk -we communicate I am not only here to just take away your pain But here to let you - Live Your Life Again I am Me – Set me free Do not be stripped of your human privileges The Greedy will always deny Man his God given rights In the name of Democracy, Controversy, Hate, Idiocrasy, They are chained in their Bureaucracies and Hypocrisies And do not see the woods for the trees I implore you do not be Of a ‘Sheeple’ people mentality I am Me – Set me free In a world encased with chemicals, plastics, synthetics Created in the name of greed, A world that is stifling, suffocating, stagnating Poisoning you and your children Let your Farmers Plant me, grow me as in days of old, I am no weed I have been here since time has begun My leafy fingers and my palm point up to the sun Absorbing and turning it’s energy into a life giving elixir I purify the very air that you breathe I am sustainability, I am Life I am Me – Set me free I can offer you the finest spun threads of my being Does not the Japanese Emperor look good in his ceremonial clothes? And did not ‘Mona Lisa’ smile - as she was stretched on my canvas? Glowing from the oils of my seeds are Van Gogh’s ‘Stars’ And my finest for Raising Lazarus by Rembrandt My spun cloth has stood the test of time Carrying your very first Stars and Stripes still in existence And did they not all feel proud when the Declaration was signed But like Judas they turned their backs without our acquiesce I am Me – Set me free Haven’t my ropes tethered and towed ships from Days of yore Until synthetics came along and put a stop to it all My woven fibre sacks once carried your food? But now with synthetics, I lie totally unused I am self sufficient I am your nutrition I am Me – Set me free Use my Oil and Mill my Seed My healing powers are all you need Leave the chemicals for the powers that be My gifts are bountiful - I give with grace Strength is in numbers - I rest my case The way for us to become stronger United we stand - we will conquer I am the Tree of life I AM ME – I AM THE HEMP TREE A Gift from Nature - Healer of Humanity
Footnote: A poet from Poetry Soup read my poem and the Footnote of ‘Christmas in July’ and was curious about the cure for Dementia with a certain Oil which would have prolonged my Mother-in-laws quality of life and indeed her life. She emailed me to write a poem and spread the word about this species. Thank you sincerely. Our family company in Australia and have been pioneers of not only Organic Skin Products but of Hemp products. We encountered resistance but were successful in countering it and were able to bring it to the people. Including a special oil. We have witnessed miraculous results with the marvelous, fine food tasting oil and products of this plant ranging from Epilepsy, MS, Parkinson’s, Dementia, Nerve related conditions, inflammation, auto immune and the list goes on. It has even been shown to make cancer cells literally commit suicide. You can freely view research results on the internet. Hemp is not weed but a species which does not contain the all feared THC. It is a total nutrition in itself and is delicious food product that can be used for culinary delights as well as smoothies. A specific Oil that is extracted and has very special properties.

Thanks Arturo, we are the biggest supplier of Hemp in Australia - not the 'Kaya' kind of Bob Marley's .lol. This is the food variety. Hope you liked my 'Drifting in Love' with the Regae music...Maria

This is a beautiful epic masterpiece Maria! I do use hemp and its many forms and the oil as well. I also use CBD for my pain in my knees, the sister weed that is medicinal and taken in pill form. There are no side affects. Your wonderful Ode to hemp is outstanding! 7 ; )

WOW! Now this is a masterpiece. I love the repetitive use of the title. You have portrayed the total disregard for our precious world well, the greed of governments and large companies and been so informative. Definitely a seven. I'm going to have to research more now on healing with hemp, lots of dementia in my family and Parkinson's disease.

WOW! Impressive poem. I loved the part about the artists, especially Van Gogh, my favorite. This is information that I did not know. Thank you for that footnote. My mom had MS...She has passed away. If only we knew of these cures before time. Blessings.

- Often medication is a "simple" things that could save many sad life ... Time and money is always a big case ... must be approved by many ... when it finally is ready ... it costs too much to use ... sad :(

Thank you Anne-Lise, Actually the words just started flowing, the inspiration came out of no where though our years of knowledge helped.Yes medical researchers have been well aware for years. The powers that be in the US took out a patent some 30 years ago. The Australian Government took out a patent in 2003. Monsanto and the Big Pharma have been trying to synthesize it for awhile. Pity individuals and kids that have suffered in the mean time. But the tables are turning very quickly now and the 'voice of the people' is prevailing.

Amazing poem with a great message. It would be great if it would be readily available for all.

Thanks Tim. Indeed the tables are turning because of the voice of the people. In the US at the moment States are 'queuing up' to get it passed because they see the tax dollars. Hemp as food is readily available in most countries. In Australia a person donated 35m to the Government as they were incarcerating parents who used it on their kids who had epilepsy - It didn't take long for them to have it passed - with restrictions of course.
Date: 3/29/2017 11:11:00 AM
This is a poem that deals with the healing powers of nature. The poet brings us back to nature once more to reawaken our taste for its purity and wonder. Very well put with easy flow rhythm. Emile.

PS Your home country produces the best hemp foods (as you would know) - which we import. They are largest growers.

Thank you so much, Maria, for writing this outstanding poem. I'm afraid big drug companies that are so 'protective' of their profit line will make their voices heard in the corridors of power, but your voice stands loud and strong, and the word will go around. A heartfelt 7:) Amitiés

Thanks Anne Marie, Indeed the voice of the people is turning the tide. The US has realized the tax dollars to be had. Hemp for food of course is available in many countries now. Hemp as food is a complete nutrition and available in many countries. Many States in the US are queuing up to have it passed. It's sad to see the suffering particularly Kids who have died when help was at hand.

A very important, informative and highly creative poem my friend.. I am keenly aware of how certain natural remedies are vilified or even outlawed by governments.. Super 7, for this fine poem my friend!

Thank you Robert, It's the voice of the people that is finally turning the tables. Sad to see kids and adults suffering when help has been available from ancient times. Hemp foods - which is a perfect, tasty nutrition are now available in most countries - but the special Oil I refer to is now being allowed. It took a donation of 35m from a single individual for the Australian Government to sit up and listen. Ironic isn't it - money talks they say. Blessings
Date: 3/29/2017 8:12:00 AM
Thank you for sharing this excellent poem and the info that you provided with it, Maria. I believe that Big Pharma and the big money generated is what keeps governments from implementing certain natural remedies. I shall look up the hemp products you write about. Regards // paul

On the contrary - Thank you Paul for your appreciation and understanding of the subject. Indeed the Big Pharma has been responsible for influencing, but they have lost ground and the combined voice of the people world wide is turning the tables to bring this nutritious product and importantly the Special Oil out in the open. There is not a family in the world where a person could have a condition which can be helped. All the best

Profound words Maria, I completely believe in natural cures and rarely will I see a doctor, because I know that they will only recommend drugs which I am totally against. Excellent write 10

Thanks Cecilia for the high praise and the 10 both of which I will accept graciously. Yes the natural cures are the best and we should be able to have them freely.

Hello Maria. Allow me to say outstanding and written with dignity and grace. There are no words for this illness for the person directly or for the family and loves one looking on. What we become is heartbreaking. Your repetitive line is so very powerful and expressive. The entry gives chills. More than well done in its entirety.

Thank you Dear Demetrios, yes I wondered what happened to your comment, but of course, no need to apologize. There has been so much red tape with this product, there are times when we feel like giving up, but will persevere. Thanks for the support dear friend, and oh the heavenly 7

Bravo Maria for bringing this to our attention. Our local member of parliament is trying to get cannabis legalised for 'medicinal purposes' and this oil would appear to have benefits for sufferers of many conditions and yet it doesn't have the same side effects as the weed:-) hugs Jan xx

Thanks Jan, yeah its been a long uphill battle with our Govt. unbelievable actually all the red tape , and to still insist on us putting on labels saying for external use is ludicrous to say the least.Still there are many brave people out there lobbying for their rights and one day they'll have to give in. Thanks for the lovely comments and the visit Jan. Hugs back xx
