OUR WORLD IN POETRY

 

 


AMERICA’S CHILDREN

Children learn from what they see,
From parents to ~ The collective we,
For violence ~ Now is a national pastime,
Adults are continually and severely out of line,
Parents curse ~ Yell and scream,
The world of children can be obscene,
It’s not just parents teaching them,
It’s all venues ~ Affecting her and him…
~~~
Where did it go wrong ~ What was the date?
Remember the children ~ When they didn’t know hate?
Time was once about family and friends,
A simpler time ~ When did it end?
Now, children kill children ~ In school and out?
Where is the sanity ~ What’s it about?
As the news captures ~ And broadcasts these scenes,
It happens again ~ Like a competition routine,
Some children blame bullies ~ For the abuse,
Teachers never see it ~ They’re always confused,
It’s police, teachers, coaches, games ~ Hollywood too,
Listen to what the President, Senate and Congress, ~ Spew,
America has become complacent ~ Ask yourselves, Why?
Lady Liberty’s light is harder to hold high.
She may have stumbled ~ But she didn’t fall,
America needs help ~ From one and all.

Moving on ~ To what children hear and see,
Listen and watch ~ What’s on the TV,
Clean family shows ~ Are almost nil,
Put in the F-word and guns ~ Watch people kill,
Not just cable ~ Not anymore,
The trusted three networks ~ Have opened that door,
With the lack of taboos ~ Alls fair game,
America’s children ~ Will bare America’s shame,
Don’t TV exec’s have youngins ~ Shouldn’t they care?
Respect’s been flushed ~ Into a sewer somewhere,
Apathy begets apathy ~ And a nation becomes lost,
The Greatest Resource On Earth ~ America’s Children ~ The Cost.

I have added a new page,

POLITICS & OPINIONS.

After I have interjected my thoughts on
today's issues, here on my home page.  I will then move them to the new page.  Like all of my other pages the newest will always be on top
.  That way I always know what I was thinking, when I was thinking it...lol  I have added a Political & Opinions page.  This way we know what I was thinking ~ When I was thinking it.

OUR WORLD IN POETRY
Today's News ~ Is Tomorrow's History


Our World In Poetry" is dedicated to "Our World" & "Poetry." It is an observation of the events that make up the world we live in. All news stories are researched and all pictures in this book are accompanied by the author's name. The pictures trigger a memory and the words hopefully captures the heart. People like to read about things they know or remember ~ This book does it in rhyme and the accuracies still hold true. It is also an heirloom that pictures, names & ages, and how some of these events affected their lives can be written down. Then they can be handed down to "Tomorrow's Children."

The "Painted Cave Walls" ~ Of Eons Past,
Have met printed word ~ With a camera cast,
Not yet a dinosaur ~ Bound Books shoved to the rear,
As digital emerges ~ Progress begins with a tear.


As I stated earlier this is my tribute to 'Our World' & 'Poetry' & You. It is a treasure trove of Illustrated International News written in rhyme. It is written in plain English with no hidden meaning. Everything has been researched so each piece can stand on its own merit. I know in my heart this time period can be passed down to "Tomorrow's Children." These words and pictures hopefully will make them laugh, cry and understand some of struggles of our era. With all my heart I pray that "Tomorrow's Children" ~ Our children's children will have conquered our demons and will know inner peace. I have no words of wisdom for them ~ Just a few words of fragmented truths depending on a society past.

Enjoy, 

~Me~

Thank You Jesus,

Thank You Jesus for “The Old Rugged Cross,”
For all You’ve give us ~ And for those we’ve lost,
Thank You for staying and not walking away,
For hearing our words as we pray,
Thank You for wearing the “Crown of Thorns,”
For baring the pain ~ Our sins ~ You mourned,
Thank You for the spikes in Your Feet and Hands,
For telling Your Father ~ They don’t understand,
Thank You sometimes goes unsaid,
Yet, You forgive ~ And love instead,
Thank You for the spear in Your side,
For the blood You spelt ~ When crucified,
Thank You Jesus ~ For today and tomorrow,
For the happiness now ~ And then for the sorrow.

Amen


 ~~~ 
Really, thanks for coming in and reading His words.  He just allows me to put them on paper.  For that, I am grateful.  I realize that these poems are not religious, but they all let us know that He is here.  He may be silent ~ But, He is not gone.  God has given us so very  much and for the most part we ignore and neglect His words. It may be time for us to look around at
"Our World" and realize that we are in trouble.  
He is here ~ He does see ~ He does listen ~ 
~ Silence does not equal gone ~
~ Silence equals free will ~
~ Dialog is the answer ~
~ He Is The Way ~
~ So Pray ~
