I look down from heaven, and what do I see?
A body on the battlefield that looks a lot like me!
Body parts are missing:there's blood everywhere...

 How the freedom won by others is here for us to stay.

 But...

CHAPTER 7b (Ipiki, continued)

Now the bats abruptly vanished
But for one unlucky creature 
Which the hunting snake now swallowed 
 
And, its scaly torso flexing
Disappeared into the foliage 
Which regained its...

Stillness feels deep here in these halls;
Silent vistas offer relief;
Death brings sure sleep at curtain call;
Cold agendas in grief's sad brief.

Long passageways and rows and rows;
Lonely sailings to unknown shores;
The dead don't say what yonder...

Remembering Vlad
I first glanced at you
Quietly looking away
I'll never hold you
My selfish declaration 
I'm not that strong
Weaker than I perceived you were
Seeing you behind those tiny bars
Unable to lift your head from
That stained mattress

In her lofty ways, she was always
the best example of
the stars out-shining the moon.

Her ways of doing things always

Can thee not hear the ringing, in the
Heights beyond, the clanging of freedom’s bell!
It is the sounding of revolution, chiming in the

Americans are Americans, period.
