|This line sem to be rather daunting for me...
"To look for the promised land that never existed."
Perhaps the promised land lays hidden within the depths of our individual and unique soul. A seperate peice of heaven for each of us. To be discovered by us on our journey through time, space and the lifes we each live. Just a thought...
Great and penetrating write. Thank you for sharing this...

|Reminds me of the stories my grandmother told me of when her parents came to the U.S. from Italy. Our world is in a very sad state and it will be up to the children of today to get things back on track. Lovely poem you have shared with us.

|This is an incredible piece of work
You have Instilled so many descriptive,and
Informative words throughout your poem.
Theirs so many people dying everyday
As they go looking for the
promised land I believe the government should help make it
Easier for them to be citizens an not
illegal aliens also would stop a lot
Of the illegal transportation that's corrupting and
killing people in our world!
Excellent detail,Excellent poem
And certainly an Excellent writer!
Love And Peace to You..Morning Star

|Peter this is so heart touching. Once all our families, unless we are of Native American descent, were reaching for the promise land. I think somehow it should be easier to become legal citizens and not illegal aliens in this country. Great and thought provoking write.|

|Reviewed by Tactfully Naive
|Reveals all too starkly that survival in today's highly competitive world is a matter of winners and losers. The UK population in 1997 was 57million. In the short space of ten years it has skyrocketed to 62m and is putting a huge strain on resources and infrastructure. The number of losers is mounting and is evident on the streets in the form of homelessness. Disilution is rampant.|

|An excellent poem about the suffering of many souls....no matter which way it goes!!
|Reviewed by Kimmy Van Kooten
|I have had the opportunity to sponser, with my family, other families that have come here to America. We have sponsered Vietmanese, Cuban, Dutch. German, Japanese, Haitian, etc...Some came over as exchange students, some as refugees, but all in all, they were very determined and worked very hard to accomplish what they had set out to do! With a little help alot of these people are now as content as most... I think your poem, gives thought and spirit, depending on how it is read, could inspire or discourage...the promise land is heaven sent, whether it be here or in heaven, its all up to the individual who's heart is in the right place...to do good, not only for themselves but to all mankind!
I enjoyed this~
Love and Peace~

|wonderfully felt lines here of hope, a sense of blinded faith and a heart with only one choice...
"desperate to reach the promise land
amid sufferings, injuries and death
they scale fences and deserts
lurking in shadows that are not there
to wait for a chance and a time"
all too real
|Reviewed by Sherry Heim
|What you have written here is truth, Peter and for legal immigrants, perhaps the dream can come true but for those who come here illegally, they will never find their dream. They are slaves trapped in a web of passive slavery; they work for little and are often forced to live like animals simply to survive, dreaming of a better life for their family.

|Risking lives over and over again
To reach the promised land.
History is replete with these extremely stoic souls, and you pen their story well, Peter.
