The pilgrimage begins
At the moment of of
Our birth.
For each of us to discover
Our purpose
Here on Earth.
The instant we
Exit the silence
Of the womb,
The world then becomes
Our enlightenment
Or our tomb.
Do not fault your
Parents, as soon you will
See, the lessons they
Have learned
Were at their
Parent's knee.
Society is fraught
With those saying
They are wise.
If you pay attention,
The words are
Mostly lies.
The devil is amongst
Us. Do not be surprised.
He wears a cloak
Of grandiosity.
Truly his best
Disguise.
Our children today
Are left behind
By a  government based
On greed,
Failing to address what
They really need.
The family unit
Disintegrates
Into a pool of scum.
Watching FOX and
NASCAR
Until they are numb.
The mire and stagnation,
The blinders on our eyes.
How have we failed
To become
A little wise?
Do we think God
Uncaring,
To let his son die in vain?
Do you think he really cares
If it's Obama or McCain?
I pray each person
Awaken
To the beauty
Of their soul,
Assisting the Universe
To acheive it's final goal.
I am not a wiseman,
A sage, or a sooth.
Just a woman with
A pen
Exploring the meaning
Of truth.

 

I am a mother concerned about everyone's children and the secrecy behind our government.
