Tortured Ideals

2 05 2012

Misinterpreted

Mislead

Perverted words

And tortured ideals

But who to trust

When they all disagree

On what’s a must

Some say “More freedom!”

Unless you are gay

Or a woman

Or black

Or brown

Others say

“Get out of the Middle East!”

“It’s not our fight!”

But what about that

Disastrous plane flight

And the towers ablaze

Am I in a dream

Or do we really have two sides

With no in between?

That’s my future your playing with,

By the way

My voice is drowned

In the volatile crowd

I don’t have money for a Super PAC

How are those legal anyway?

The concept is simply whack

I’m too young to vote

But old enough to know

This is a bad direction to go

Why don’t you all shut up

And look around

Before this all-out boxing match

Starts another round

Sometimes I think it would be bette if younger people ran the world.
Mostly I just wish older people would consider the situation the way you do.
Eloquently stated, Andrea!

‘Before this all-out boxing match

…and round and round. You have a powerful poetic voice, Andrea!

Older or younger…let’s not generalize…there’s enough divisiveness. Let’s emphasize our connectedness in how we live and respect each other and work towards peace…and leaving the world a better place than we find it.
