Matters of the Heart

Just a Thought:

Some will justify their deeds

to avoid an indictment of the matters

of their heart.

If you’re the crow and not the feeder, make sure the hand that feeds you doesn’t cause you to croak over. If you’re the feeder and not the crow, make sure the crow you feed does not deceive you into becoming an old grouchy crow too.

Liberty and Justice

aliberty

Should I give up my rights to give you your rights,? Should I relinquish my morals and convictions because they’re an offense to you? Should I be required to give up what I believe to make you comfortable to stand for what you believe? Should I be silent to give you a voice? Should I be bound so you could be free? Should I lose myself so you can find yourself? Should I shrink so you can grow? Should I be unhappy to make you happy? Should I only listen and never be heard?

Without a mutual exchange there is no compromise, there is no liberty and justice for all. Where’s the equality?

A Poem for Such a Time as This

Ruby Dee

Today is ours, let’s live it
And love is strong, let’s give it
A song can help, let’s sing it
And peace is dear, let’s bring it
The past is gone, don’t rue it
Our work is here, let’s do it
Our world is wrong, let’s right it
The battle hard, let’s fight it
The road is rough, let’s clear it
The future vast, don’t fear it
Is faith asleep? Let’s wake it
Today is ours, let’s take it
