let it burn

let it burn                                    May 25, 2016
all is right in my soul
when all is right between us

the world burns from the flames
of evil, power-hungry men
throwing gasoline on the sparks of hatred

but all is right in my soul
because we are putting it right between us

the earth cries from the army boots
squashing the poor like ants
further into misery

but all is right in my soul
when you hold my heart safe

the wind howls from jet engines
dropping bombs and poison
on schools and hospitals

but all is right in my soul
when you feed my mind the nectar of new words

About m

My ego wants to think I'm a writer but my heart knows I'm just another one of God's Kids who sometimes has words to say. 2.5 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. My most recent completed endeavor was finishing BA's in Religious Studies and American Studies. I don't remember what free time is but I think I like to spend it sleeping or playing in the mud on a river bank.
