CHILDREN'S POETRY

Our world today is so distressed with environmental pollution and political chaos... Sometimes I just need a place to spill my feelings..

DYING FOR OIL
 
In a villiage faraway lies a dying child.
A whale lying on a shore, dies lost and wild.
Two of many victims, in a world mad and lost.
The guilty go on living, while the innocent pay the cost.



Where is the justice for our cause, where is the mighty speaker?
The guilty keep on getting stronger, while we keep getting weaker.
Come on lets take a stand, we must fight for our heart.
We must stand for justice, we must do our part.



Dying for oil and for greed, if we get in their way.
The pollution is killing the ozone layer, now we have to pay.
We have no rights and no money, our children have lack of food.
We must sit back while the big boys play, and dig the earth for crude.



They're cutting down all the trees, the jungles are going bare.
They're poisoning the water, and pollution fills the air.
Starting wars to and fro, no future seems so great.
Let's take a stand for peace and love, before it is too late!
 
 

FAR FROM THIS WORLD

Far from this world, there must be a place,
filled with shining light, and ever loving grace.
A world free of fear, with peace and love within,
in a sky of eternity, that will never end.


Free from pollution, and the hum-drum way of life.
Free from hate and anger, that cuts you like a knife.
Far from this world, someday we will see,
what it's really like, to live fully free!

 

 

THE NEXT PRESIDENT
 
A gleam within his eye; a smile upon his face,
It looks like Barack Obama is set to win this race.
He is awe-inspiring; this I'll admit is true,
and he's got a well-made orchestrated crew.
 
 
But then again John Edwards, the one I'm rooting for,
stands for honest gains and helping all the poor.
He is not for big corporate interest; thank goodness for the man,
and health care for kids and families are all in his plans.
 
Now for Hilary Clinton, it's not looking good.
I guess she is not looking in the right neighborhoods.
She stood for war in the past, what more can I say?
And though she's got experience, it seems she'll have to pay.
 
It will be a democrate, of this I'll stake my claim.
The only thing republicans give, is more of the same.
We need someone new; a refreshing honest face.
So Obama, Edwards, or Clinton, only one can win the race!

 "Silence,they say,is the voice of complicity. But silence is impossible. Silence screams. Silence is the message,just as doing nothing is an act. Let who you are ring out and resonate in every word and deed. Yes,become who you are. There's no sidestepping your own being or your own responsibility. What you do is who you are. You are your own comeuppance. You become your own message. You are the message. In the Spirit of Crazy Horse." 
 Leonard Peltier~ U.S. Federal Prisoner #89637-132 

"A thing of beauty is a joy forever: Its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness; but still will keep a bower quiet for us, and a sleep full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing."--John Keats
