SILENCE OF FOREVER
The silence of forever in eternity
Speaks loudly to me
And should to all who draw breath
Time is too short for lies
Too short for entreaties
Too short for life
Playtime is over
Lies spoken pounce on our minds like famished tigers;
his untruths blow us away like puffs of dandy lion fluff
His lies will eventually die devoured by critical thought
The indomitable American Spirit will survive
this onslaught of falsehoods
Lies will not destroy this great country
nor will the clamor of unbridled and misguided emotional zeal
We are too strong to fall for fake signs of golden glitter
My pained heart asks me,
“Where do you think we're headed?”
“To hell if we don’t change our ways!” annoyed, I yell.
Heaven or hell, hell or heaven?
Does it matter?
The all too invisible wealthy are in control
and the benevolent Gods are nowhere to be seen
God is everywhere, but not in the hearts of the rich
soon, if we're not careful and vigilant,
we may be consumed by the arrogant,
self-interest and bigoted shortsighted actions
of bad people in government
if we're silent
