Harmony

We knew you well in the summer of peace and love.

We were a movement of one set of ideals.

We were young and trusting.

Led to the slaughter.

Viet Nam.

~*~

Powers

placed us

on the front lines of

their military industrial money machine.

58 thousand died, the rest lost all hope for harmony.

~*~

Powers, held in secret, bought with sacrificial blood.

Not the vile pretenders we argue about and vote for.

Minds believing, no life matters, just their power.

Their one and only fear in life, is our unity.

You can see their new plan in progress.

~*~

Everything held dear is based on unity.

Common kindness evaporates when

there is no food on the shelfs.

Trust, becomes a vagabond

without a home.

~*~

We.

The people.

Must Stand Together.

No matter how many they kill.

We are greater than the problems we face.

We are at a crossroads, look beyond today’s map.

~*~

Every human needs the same things in this life.

More so than Things, we need each other’s trust.

Independence Day is about breaking away from

powers that serve only the few, not the people.

Seems we’re being led to the slaughter again.

~*~

If we don’t stand together, all fall, one at a time.

Today’s World, each sector bids for superiority,

 instead of using power for the common good.

Our country is only as great as its people.  

Each and every life matters.

I was there in this time you talk about in this poem, and yes, we are there again.
Deja Vu all over again.

let's hope this movement doesn't die out, that it reaches its purpose..to let us all be of equal importance.
