LIBERTY and JUSTICE for ALL

bellnight
WE ALL WANT OUR LIBERTY.
YET, SOME HAVE TO FIGHT FOR EQUALITY.
WHY SHOULD SOME HAVE TO FIGHT
FOR THEIR RIGHTS TO BE FREE
WHEN THIS WORLD WAS CREATED
EQUALLY FOR ALL TO BE FREE?
ARE WE LIVING IN A WORLD CREATED BY MAN?
IF SO, WITH ALL HIS CREATIVE BRILLIANCE,
WHY WOULD HE CREATE HIS WORLD
TO INCLUDE THOSE HE WANTED
TO HAVE NO PART OF IT?
WAS MAN GIVEN THE RIGHTS TO LORD OVER OTHERS?
OR, IS THIS WHY THINGS ARE SUCH A MESS?
WHAT A SHAME, SINCE WE WERE ALL CREATED EQUALLY.
THERE ARE POISONOUS WASTES IN OUR GULF STREAMS.
THESE WASTE POLLUTES OUR OCEANS,
AND THEY THREATENS OUR SEAS.
YES, THE CONTAMINATED WATER IN FLINT MICHIGAN
IS A SOCIETAL DISGRACE,
BUT, WE’RE NO BETTER THAN THE WASTE
THAT WE ALLOW TO POLLUTE OTHERS
WHEN WE ALLOW PRIDE, BIGOTRY, AND HATRED,
IN OUR HEARTS AGAINST OTHERS TO SPEW ALL OVER .
WE LET THESE POISONS RAGE SAVAGELY
THROUGHOUT OUR SOUL,
AND THEN THEY CONTAMINATE OUR BEING.
THE STENCH FROM THEM ARE ALLOWED TO
SPILL ALL OVER THIS WORLD.
WE BICKER BECAUSE OF DIFFERENCES
IN RACE, SEX, AND CREED,
AND WHERE IS MAN TO PUT THESE THINGS IN CHECK?
WHO SHOULD WE THANK?
IS IT MAN?
BETTER YET,
WHO SHOULD WE BLAME FOR ALL OUR MESS?
IS IT MAN?
THE SAME MAN WHO THINKS HE IS BETTER THAN OTHERS?
MAN WHO THINKS HE RULES THIS WORLD?
THEN MAN, YOU SHOULD GIVE US A BREAK?
WHILE MAN IS BUSY FIGHTING OVER TRIVIAL MATTERS,
HOSTING AND HAVING HIS RALLIES,
OUR CHILDREN ARE CRYING TO BE NOTICED,
TOO MANY ARE DYING UNNOTICED.
EVEN SOME ARE DYING AT THE HANDS
OF THOSE WHO SHOULD PROTECT THEM.
TOO MANY CHILDREN ARE NOT ALLOWED
TO HAVE A DECENT CHILDHOOD,
BECAUSE THEIR INNOCENCE WAS STOLEN
BY COWARDLY, AND DESPICABLE, ACTS.
OFTEN BY THE FRIENDLY HANDS THEY KNEW,
THE HANDS THAT SHOULD HAVE HELD THEM
AND MADE THEM FEEL SECURE.
WOULD WE EVER GET THINGS RIGHT?
WOULD WE EVER GIVE UP
ALL THE BICKERING AND PETTY FIGHTS?
WOULD WE EVER ALLOW THIS WORLD
TO REVOLVE AROUND UNITY AND PEACE?
DO WE NEED TO WAIT FOR THE AFTERLIFE
BEFORE WE TURN THIS WHOLE WORLD AROUND?
SOON THIS WORLD WON’T BE A BETTER PLACE,
UNLESS EACH ONE OF US MAKE AN EFFORT
TO DO WHAT IS RIGHT.
LET’S LIVE UP TO THE PRINCIPLES
THAT WE PIOUSLY SING ABOUT,
CAN WE JUST HAVE SOME LIBERTY
AND JUSTICE FOR ALL?
IF WE CAN’T DO IT FOR OURSELVES,
CAN WE DO IT FOR THE CHILDREN?
