JEALOUSY

~It's Out There~

Green colored field 
A flower without the sun 
Wilts from distrust 
now washed away 
by the man storm

To Believe in Something

White Rose of Yorkshire
this my national emblem,
we grew together
the heart does not surrender
to those that don’t seek pride.

Chauvinist

The right to freedom
Casts but a shadow of doubt
For the luckiest
Can not see it or hear it
And there appears, chauvinist
