Just thinking about all the great activists that I have seen live and die in my time and this was the resulting write

An Old Hippy Prayer


 


When all the marchers join together


When the all protesters reunite


Well we walk the path of Jesus


To show the world what’s right


 


Well we walk behind the Kennedy’s


With John Lennon by our side


Well Martin Luther hold our hand


As we march forth with pride


 


Will Gandhi wear his famous smile


Will Mother Theresa say a prayer


That our voices will be strong enough


For all the world will hear


 


End the wars of genocide


The war of poverty as well


Stop abusing little children


Instead love in them instill


Hold out the hand of freedom


Equality for all to see


Save this earth’s damnation


Brothers and sisters let it be!

Seems to me An Old Hippie's Prayer is still alive amongst the next generation, however, in a high tech way. I'm still a little young for the Hippie movement, but I see that memories you have written about yester years will soon be a reality for the next generation.

Great Job.

many of the hippie's of then were way showers and they walked the path, created music, art, poetry, became leaders... additionally many of them had children or influenced children, therefore the evolution of change began and continues with each passing generation

I consider them revolutionaries, because it takes courage to point out the inconsistencies of society and be dedicated to change, even if in a small way. We should all do our part, but alas, sheep do not lead.

From one old hippie to another, good work.

The eastern world is still exploding, still violence flaring and bullets loading, their old enough to kill and now for voting, they still don't believe in war, yet still the guns their toten, and they tell me over and over and over again my friend. Still they don't believe we're on the Eve of Distruction. Timeless memories left in songs.

May we all find peace in our hearts as great leaders sought. Lady J

You take me back, Ed, to the days of my youth...which are longer ago than you'd think! LOL I remember seeing many of the protests on TV, feeling sad...look how far we've come today: still protesting, still a sadness. Wars don't solve nothing, but I back the troops, who are only following orders...that's what's maddening, I am a Veteran, and our men and women, it seems, are dying because of apathy...aw, shoot, the memories this brings back, (((Fee))), an excellent capture of the unrest which continues to this day.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

What a unique and outstanding write my friend...I have often thought that I was born in the wrong year...my birth year is 63 and have vague memories of much of the Hippie movement, but had I been a teenager during the protests and marches...I probably would've been there. Growing up in the seventies I and a few friends were often referred to as being Hippies, that seems like an eternity ago, ah youth! But, seriously people can say what they will about the Hippie movement, but they did and some still do believe and support many causes that it wouldn't hurt for a few to take a look at. Such as peace instead of war! You've mentioned some wonderful leaders in your poem which was very well written and I very much enjoyed! Dr. Martin Luther King was an outstanding leader and helped accomplish so much for mankind...I have often thought I would look him up when I make it to Heaven, as well as a few others who forever changed history for many today! Enjoyed this much! Fantastic write!
Blessings,
Joyce Bowling
