Secret Weapon © 2013

One rhyme equals one reason.                             
I’m the new secret weapon.  
I remember nine eleven.  
I’m no fireman or policeman.                     
What if I could take place of one?               
I am one voice with one vote.             
Freedom is not free.                                                                     
Never be for our world.                                                                        
I’m your new secret weapon.                              
No AK forty-seven going to stop me.                       
I’m one push of a button.                                                     
I’ll shoot you from miles away.                 
I’ll find each, everyone one of you.                           
Value to be free stands between me and you.               
There is no more life for a life.                                                            
Just I stand for a life or lives.

Remember me.                                              
I’m silent.                                                                                                    
I’m deadly.                                                                                                 
I stand for freedom to be.                                                              
Remember me.                                                                                         
I’m silent.                                                                                 
I’m deadly.                                                                              
I stand for freedom to be.

Life will never be fair.          
I’ll be hovering in the air.
An eye of an eagle flies for all colors.
We will disagree.        
In the end we’re all free.                                                        
Talking, seeing and being with family.                                             
Terror versus justice here’s a word of advice:                                
I’ll be watching.                                                                   
I’m one push of a button.                                                                   
Nothing is fair.                                                                     
We all lose in the end.                                                              
Just to make amends to those losses.                             
You can fight alright by other means.                                  
You got a brilliant mind don’t you?                                         
Educate and relate your thoughts.                                            
Use your ability to better the world.                              
Security lies in the people.                                        
Not the terror within ourselves.                                                                        
In the end you’re just a history book.                                                      
On a shelf is collecting dust.                                                                                  
Learn from history to unite.                                                                                    
Not to divide the values of hatred.                                                                           
We all believe in a God.                                                                                  
In the end we all turn to dust.

Remember me.                                                                                                                   
I’m silent.                                                                                                                 
I’m deadly.                                                                                                                      
I stand for freedom to be.                                                                                   
Remember me.                                                                                          
I’m silent.                                                                                                       
I’m deadly.                                                                                                                  
I stand for freedom to be.

Enjoy the time here on this heavenly place.                        
There’s nothing out there close to this Earth.                                                     
May we find one, one day?                                                                                      
Pay tribute to start populating.                                                                                     
Give birth to those losses.                                                            
Educating is our values to our children.                                                                    
Sharing our times with family and friends.                                     
Gangs are gone, seemingly.                                                                              
They arise and fall, only to the conviction.                                                         
We let them emerge in society.                                                                     
New picture is the mental mind.                                                    
Anguish is the new dilemma in thought.                                                       
There are more drugs for so many cures.                                                                
I don’t know if all these medicines work?                                           
They seem to have an effect on the society.                                                     
I mean seeing more advertisement for them.                                           
More than Pepsi or McDonald’s put together.                                             
Not like they are any better.                                                                              
They are doing something.                                                
Making is the world a better place.                                                                              
I believe in freedom.                                                                             
That’s why I’m talking to you.                                                                                    
I may not matter to you.                                                                                               
I do matter to someone else.                                                                                    
Remember that so do you.                                                                                 
I’m one push of a button.                                                                         
I’ll equalize the situation.                                                                                 
Never cause the conflict.                                                                                          
I’m technology.                                                                                                              
You have to deal with me.                                                                            
You made me remember that.                                                                                    
Let us hear the sound of freedom.

Remember me.                                                      
I’m silent.                                                                                                            
I’m deadly.                                                                                                                
I stand for freedom to be.                                    
Remember me.                                                                                          
I’m silent.                                                                                                                
I’m deadly.                                                                                                  
I stand for freedom to be.

Amazing poem my friend. You have dug deep with this one. Profound wisdom, spoken from a place of Love and a loathing for terror and crimes of war. retaliation and revenge they get us nowhere. Much needed in this world. as relevant today as it was a decade and 9/11 ago. I believe we have similar values and dreams. One love and a world united in PEACE. The only weapon for hatred is love.

One thing I saw:

Sharing are times with family and friends.

I think here you may have meant "Sharing our times..."

This one was really cool, I loved that you were making a statement on how we all have to work to make the world better.
