The Cry of a Nation

The Cry of a Nation

A Poem by L.C. Jarrette
"

Tells us about the cruel truth: "That we are becoming our own enemy" - and we must do something about it.

"

“The Cry of a Nation”

 

My sisters! My brothers!

Do you DESPISE us this much?

Do you really think we DESERVE all this?

Well, if that's the case then, MY BROTHER,

 

I suppose you think so highly of yourself

To even SPAT those kinds of remarks,

knowing that YOUR BROTHERS are suffering, starving,

and in constant fear of death.

 

I suppose you take delight of the tragic demise of the multitude.

I suppose you are FOND of the fact that many brave men

had risked, had sacrificed THEIR LIVES to save the wounded.

I suppose you BASK at the thought that we,

the people of the SAME race, of the SAME nation had finally fallen.

 

I suppose you think we are not brothers as well.

Are we not?

Are we not of the same land, of the same nation?

OF...THE...SAME...RACE?!!

Do we not SHARE - the same blood and the same heart?

 

Huh! How awfully austere of you to perceive us that way.

Belittling into thinking that we are useless, unimportant, INSIGNIFICANT!

But the truth is my brother, because of the law, of which you so adamantly protest,

It had in fact, saved the lives of many and had prevented more casualties of war.

 

So, Instead of the insulting remarks of indignity,

Which will only dispirit even our small inch of hope,

 

We, out of patriotism, WILL UNITE

We, out of fear, WILL SEEK the Father's guidance

And we, out of love, will continue TO FIGHT.

'Tis and it'll be THE CRY OF OUR NATION.

GOD BLESS OUR COUNTRY...

I can feel the fury and passion coming out of the page. I think this piece is best preformed than read. Perhaps if you start a youtube channel in which you preform your poetry. Its only a suggestion please do not feel obligated for one i know that i would never preform my writing because i am very shy. Nevertheless an inspiring piece

You could be a professional speech writer! I love the passion & heartfelt feelings you pour into your message. What's so sad to me is the way this message could apply to SO MANY DIFFERENT COUNTRIES AROUND THE WORLD! I had to look & see where you are from . . . sadly, the same thing could be said about the USA, where I live. We must stay unwilling to accept the indignities.
