"Yet even in this darkness I see light / The candle of our hope flickers somehow"

Candle of Our Hope

Enough of all the crass vulgarity
Of those who care for war more than the poor
Unworthy is their harsh hegemony
Of you and me and in the end they bore

They huff and puff and seek to frighten us
Are darkest when they would enlighten us
But they are only sadly misused tools
Enslaved without their knowledge by the fools
Who own and operate the world today

If we think independently we are
Thought blasphemous subversive and bizarre
They wish they could just make us go away
But this is our land too where we were born

So why will they not allow us to warn
That something is wrong in the USA?

I am a cat with claws and I strike back
When cowards lie in wait to then attack
When I am weak as they sneak up on me
I leave to the justice of destiny
Their judgment but we will be free someday

Yet even in this darkness I see light
The candle of our hope flickers somehow
That here among the wrong one thing is right
No yesterday tomorrow only now:

This love which you and I share here tonight

To the point and direct and you left nothing out, that I can sense- The strength and Faith in this Poem and your other, reminds me of the 2 I wrote earlier- Be my Guest if ya' feel up to it... Go read and feel the Something Strong as your reading, what I am putting out to the Unknown.... The Man Bra, is just funny.. but, the writing on MY babies-(you have em too)The Flame Within- is the one I would like you to Open your heart too. I hope it touches you and stays with you- YOur 1 too---- I need sleepzzzzz now, it's way after 3:00/A. and I haven't wanted to lay my head down yet- Thinking of you and the power you hold strong! bythe way.. On your earlier Poem when you said... something about your lawyer and the words before it.. I couldn't stop smiling.... YOur a Wonder sTeve! a magical Brave and Loving Wonder! Sleep Well 2night! OXWarmly,Sheee
