Dedicated to Jaklyn Carr and eight year old gospel singer and latest penguin to join the ongoing march.

 ©2006 M. Bennett Hooper

When we dare to direct our destiny we are celebrating by acceptance
Of divine intervention in our affairs.

When we dare to attempt flight
The air grows lighter and we are buoyed aloft
By protective winds that reveal our direction
If only we take the time to feel it upon our face
And recognize and follow the voices
That were once only siren songs
Submerged in our subconscious.

It is only through trialed enlightenment 
Man cane expect to tap upon the source
Of his creation.
Committed to open the door to develop his destiny  Acording to his role in the universe.

A few grains of sand, created with the ability
To harness the conceptions surrounding
his mortality.
We must believe in the directions of our destinies  Risking everything search for the meanings Underlying our personal truths in Nature's harmony

We return to church for that is where most sheep dwell-
And begin to disrobe the Shepard’s shadow
Before all of the sheep are devoured not by half truths
But- by self sustaining lies-
As we question why the priesthoods have become The thrones of oppressors of the body,
Mind, and spirit of eager innocents.

Outstanding poetic-philosophic-social composition in "An Edict" that calls for awareness to unchain the human being from servitude and spiritual disgrace.

I have heard and listened to your message, poet of light and responsibility of poetic tasks.

“AN EDIT” made me take a deep diving through the seas of history, and when I passed through the political pages I found the pictures of the depicting clearly revealed in the closing Strophe of this magnificent poetic Revelation.

I salute You, Sublime Poet!

Never let DEMONcracy chain Your VOICE.
