====================================

HERE IS A PORTION OF ONE OF HER POEMS---

"primitive earthlings"...
by melvia miller

it has been said that man advanced from the cavemen
& savage primitive ignorance


but have we really changed this behavior mystery?
have people improved as we start the 21st century?

coyote still tries to off the road-runner
...the japanese bombed pearl harbor

hitler started a war over a superior race
but why copy and conquer others--if that is the case?

child abuse, wife beatings, and road rage
difficult to find news to read on a peace page;

doesn't anybody care
what is happening to the water and air ?

==================================

NOTE: This is only an excerpt of one of the poems in the book:
'ALL FOLKS WERE CREATED EQUAL"

===================================



HERE ARE EXAMPLES OF POEMS FROM HER BOOKS --


GREED  By Melvia Miller

too many big businesses are out of control
and now our society suffers worse than in days of old

not from a virus like the black plague
but something worse---poverty at every age

EXXON, ENRON, STATE FARM, and WORLD COM...
they all have the same problem

callous, greedy and under-handed
most big business has turned into nothing but a scam

working folks spend 40 hours per week
laboring 40 years until they are so weak

that they cannot see or think
and then for that they get a small pension and a trinket

and there are the greedy insurance companies
that have put the entire nation's health care in crisis

adjusters who have no purpose in life
decide what doctors can prescribe

senators, governors and state commissions
hide from the reality of a dire need for social revisions

while the rich get richer and the poor get food stamps
and the middle class gets vamped

life use to be a lot simpler
a car, a house and few bucks left over

families could have one worker gone
and mom raised children at home

                                ~Poem by Melvia Miller

WISDOM OF PROPHETS...
              
...by Melvia Miller
 
if you ever feel confused
and you are in dispute
turn to the wisdom of leaders & prophets

those who fought this same battle
found ways to keep from getting too rattled
so turn to the wisdom of leaders & prophets

they tapped into the greatest power of the mind
thus retrieving wisdom from a source much higher
they ignored the trouble-makers and liars

turn not to the dogmatic
nor to that which is fanatic
never resort to the bad--- always do the exact
opposite

do unto others as you
want done unto you
that is the law
of prophets and wisemen all
 
~ THIS POEM BY MELVIA MILLER
..........from her book:  "all folks were created equal"


=======================================
 


THE VALUE OF HISTORY

(poem by Melvia Miller)

People grow much like a tree...
Reaching high
Up to the sky
Yearning to breathe free!

Much like a tree
Our roots need a deep hole--
Knowing our history...
Can heal wounds and sooth souls.

A strong tree
Needs deep roots.
It is the symbol of liberty
Reaching for the light of the sun
Desiring to grow into the truth.

Without truth about our godly role...
Pain, suffering and mental anguish
Manifest from the hole made in our souls
Due to the nourishment that is missed.

All souls are on a journey
To become liberated.
Look back in history
Memory to see
From whence we were all created.
