THE DISTANCE CALLS



Nothing from me has been forsaken, I have not stopped. I tried, Heaven won't let me...

~

The distance calls to me
I answer with gladness!

(What have you done to end world hunger?)

Nothing worth noting.

(What have you done to solve thirst?)

Nothing notable.

(What have you done that is notable?)

Let me ask you something, mr high n mighty, what have you done to solve our hunger?

(I have given you food.)

What have you done for those that do not see your food?

(Silence...)

What have you done for our thirst?

(I gave you water.)

Have you yourself quenched their thirst upon clean water?

(Silence...)

What of your name being evoked in war? Are you not beholden to set the record straight after all this time?

(Okay! You win! You're ruthless, Scribe! I heard about you some time ago now, you're all right in my book. )

Thanks.

Tapping toes, a distraction
Rage, the news attraction
Pure gold, rating's satisfaction The sound of murder is red
Blue's next ~ HATE CRIME REPORTS SURGE IN BRITAIN... "Hate is caused by Fear
Fear is caused by Hate
They feed off one another
End both, end all Wars.
Cease both, Heaven arises." Hate, are you Fear's second cousin? (First cousin.) Are you two close? (BFF's!) ~ ISIS CLAIMS 40 LIVES AT SHIITE SHRINE...
How many more are to be lifted before We rise up? (We need rise up just to get a headcount of those murdered.) It would be far too painful, sorrow comes from the actions of the murderer, the victims draw upon our grief...

THE RISING OF FREEDOM

The rising began and begins from deep within our being, then it brings the collective to an agreement; freedom is free. We are to follow its example and free ourselves from being a slave to “things”. To truly be free, We must agree that freedom is truly for the whole of humankind, for if one is enslaved, so shall We all be…
