Liberty
New mind fresh with ideas
Hope, dreams, his love yet to be found
From the blue sky freedom cries the eagle
Shattered, laying on the ground
Last breath released, he dies.

1. a poem I wrote..
Most who have seen it except a few liberal friends were not impressed and thought I needed therapy - such is life I guess.

2. liberty once was
To have a voice in government
that we all share together
our own governance.
How far we've fallen
that but grains of sand
crying for freedom
and no longer the beach
self aware.

4. thanks, welcome to DU
I guess the poets are asleep, or they don't do it in politics.
Perhaps you'll find better luck with poetry in the meeting room.

Wecome to DU! :toast:

Its good to have a poet.

There are too few.
Would that our wars were
fought with stanzas
and cadence, beats and
measures surely over bullets
to win the hearts so
terrified bloody
of brutal means.

Liberty!

Memorial Day
May 27, 2002

"If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin."
- Samuel Adams

Since Sept. 11, 2001, the Bush administration has pressured American citizens to silence their concerns or criticisms about policies implemented or actions taken in the name of national security or in unified support of the war on terrorism. Considering the history of this nation, this is an appalling strategy for an American president, vice-president, and attorney general to pursue. By seeking to squelch open debate, they may accomplish the opposite. They may have heightened the curiosity of Americans who are ingrained with a most powerful sense of right and wrong and the ability to discern the difference.

Perhaps the time has come for all Americans to give serious consideration to what our freedoms mean to us, the glorious fight of our founding fathers, and our most revered documents that established the bold experiment that is America.
