Am I the only one?

... does anyone hear
me in the roaring
of the wind, crying
out for justice?  It's
high time we stand up
and unite, again -
for our poor; for our
children; for our Vets;
for the disabled;
for the elderly;
for the unborn; for
our Earth; for our four-
legged friends; for all 
those who are seen, yet
invisible to
the public eye ... what's
it going to take?
Does anyone hear
me?  Or am I the
only one who cares?

(c) 2007, Karla Dorman (3/23)

Too bad your voice can't be put on this; you and Karen do such a wonderful meow! Count me in too for this great poem--we all need to do something..........!

a darling kitty...too cute not to be heard.

Yes, dear...Someone does hear us...and will soon answer this plea.
What that New Earth will mean for us all is beyond our meager understanding at this point. We can only trust that God will deliver what His word has promised.

great poem to ponder, here in bmore if you stand up for what is right Karla, the drug dealers might kill you. Quite a few witnesses were murdered before they even got to court. In this one case, the drug dealers burned the whole house down, killing everyone inside. The children, mother and father. He was caught

I care!! We'll keep howling until the world hears!

No, lass, the vast majority - the silent majority - do care but our voices are drowned out by unrepresentitive, yet powerful ideological interests.

Remember, it only takes a spark to cause a forest fire. Keep raising your voice, your voice along with many others could eventually ignite the changes that matter.

I can understand this seeming frustration you exude in this tender write dear sister Karla.

I believe that I learned a great lesson after just recently re-reading the book of Nehemiah, and how he went about rebuilding the walls around the city. God gives us what he wants us to be responsible for. No more - no less! We are responsible for maintaining the ground that we know is ours. All else around us is to be prayed about fervently. "Do not fear when you see these things around you - look up, for your redemption draweth nigh."

I can't help but feel Karla - and I am in no way a doom-sayer - that the days are short. Blessings of peace to you dear sister.

Light and Wisdom ...

"One Lone Voice (In The Wilderness)"... I hear and listen to You, Poet!

When people will find out that we are becoming the geatest slaveyard of The New World? Wake up America, before it is too late!

"One Lone Voice (In The Wilderness)" calls for JUSTICE, and Glows.

In admiration,

I don't think it is a matter of not hearing, I think it comes down to a matter of "choose your battles wisely." We are hit everyday with causes that need our attention and we each have only so much money to give and so much time to donate, to help a cause close to our hearts. I hear you in each of your cries, Karla but in order not to dilute my fight by only being able to do so much, I have had to choose from a list that I wish I could be a strong voice to all. We no longer take care of our own and certainly not our neighbors. We close our curtains so we don't have to address the poverty that surrounds us and pick up the phone and add another cable channel to our entertainment package. We call a breeder and get a "papered" dog and turn our eyes away from the ones who are taking their last breath in our shelters. We poison the air, food and water and then place the burden of correcting it upon governments. It is up to each of us to do our part and to help those who need and have no voice. We go through life with blinders on and humans are loosing their compassion and fight. We seem to be beaten down and we just lie back and take it in order not to create ripples in our communities. Once we cared for our neighbors, understanding that one day we might need their, we take care of ourselves and shrug our shoulders to the needy...very sad, Karla, very sad.
Take care,

Mr. Ed,

Thank you for reminding me that the Earth and our animals, both wild and domestic, need a voice to speak out for them; thank you!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
Reviewed by Mr. Ed 3/23/2007
Please add Mother Earth, wild animals, and our loyal pets to your fine list - and unfortunately, and very sadly, - far and far fewer people seem to care about any of these groups these days.

I truly believe that we have become a modern world of Self First, Everyone and Everything Else Last.
