Politics and people today.

I loudly proclaim PEACE, but my solitary voice cannot survive the clamor for war.

I cup my hands and yell, REMEMBER THE CONSTITUTION, but my words fall, softly unheard, on the shreds of our founding documents.

I call out, FREEDOM FOR ALL, but my weary voice echoes in the empty halls of justice, dies in the crowded courtrooms, and is buried in the bulging prisons.
 
I request JUSTICE, but my voice is muffled by the dirty hands of Congress.
 
I demand TRUTH; I passionately denounce the lies, but my fellowman covers his collective ears.
 
I beg for SANITY, but my lonely voice is lost in the chaos and confusion.
 
I cry for COMPASSION, but my weeping is drowned out by the painful mockery and cries of pain.
 
I know silence is certain destruction and eventual slavery. I cannot go into that dark place quietly, and so I use my eternal voice to PRAY, Father forgive us.  We know not what we do.
 
Grandma Kay Lee

Freedom has a thousand charms to show,
 That slaves, howe'er contented, never know.
