What Will We Leave Our Children


beautiful-love-natureAs vile as we
Are beautiful ~
Still ~
I think the
Human race ~
Has earned the
To go on ~

If you judge us
As a whole ~
And not by the
Evil causes
We’ve espoused
From time to time ~

The great majority ~
Though not as
As it once was ~
Is made up
Of those
Just like us ~

Who want the
Same things ~
Feel the same
Emotions ~
Bleed the same
Color ~

Can we not try ~
Here in this
Eleventh hour ~
To choose what
Is best
For us All ~

Will you not
Join together ~
So that our
Will have
Air to breathe ~

I'm either a transplanted East Coaster or a born again West Coaster. My heart kept pulling me toward Oregon, and when I followed it I found my dream, which I am living daily. My dream of becoming a writer has come true as well. I am in the company of people who speak my language, and the sense of community is healing hurts I didn't know were there. I am very grateful for my enormous good fortune.

  1. From your lips to God’s ears! May these words become the chant of the masses! I am so tired of the refusal of the elected government representatives to work together for all the people not just a minority of the populace. Thank you for sharing.

    • Frank, I truly believe that most of us want the same thing. It’s the governments we’ve elected who are unwilling, unable, or both, to do the jobs to which they were elected. They’re too busy throwing sand in the gears. We the people need to get off our couches and Vote for the best candidates available. It’s time we started asking ourselves again, what can we do for our country?


  2. Truly valid concerns and questions.
