You will feel the press of hands,

the tug of the yoke.

If you are  forced down  rise up,

lifted by a chain of unity.

Your eyes will see a thousand miles deep,

they will cry, the tears dried by your master.

Your words will be silenced for they are dangerous.

The weight of the night sky rests upon your shoulders.

From your heart a starling  sings

her song of possibility.

    • I guess torture is a topic pulled back up by our new dic…prez. It is sinful to torture and puts military around the world in danger. That is what we determined at the Geneva Convention. Mr. Trump would like to tear down all the good that so many have died for.


      • Ah…well, don’t permanently fix red horns on him yet—the previous prez didn’t give a f… about human life at all visa/vei Lybia, prisoners in IrAN, or black folks in the ghetto—until he/they needed votes. Sorry for the bad language! the previous one cared more for golf, parties in the White House and hobbling his own Secretary of state Sorry—I got going–I’m doing not so well myself! Delayed on getting a rescratched sore tended to…so I’m receiveing antibiotic via infusion..and lost one evening of work! Won’t burden you with the rest…but we can’t just shut down and go away—we gotta fight and li ve! Can’t really see the small print, so apologize for all the typos!. Loveyou Friend—always will! Can you forgive a frustrated—supposedly young (?) man–for popping off! 🙂


        • Thank you for not holding my raving against me! ❤ My wife needs me, my job needs me, I need me (!) and maybe somebody here might, too! Thank you for not lashing out—I deserved it and probably still do! Got another round of infusion Sunday am… Maybe…I'll take Tylenol WITH ME…so when the dr. drains the wound on my knee again, it won't bother so much. 🙂 Take care of yourself, too. I must need you to talk to–please don't be scared away by being needed to some extent!??? Kiss a Florida bug for me (?) Please don't stay angry!


        • I’m not at all angry! We all have our opinions and I am sorry that there is so much division right now. All that aside just take care of yourself, sending you very positive thoughts to heal quickly. 🙂


        • Jonathan, none of these words or descriptions are valid about President Barack Obama! Where in the world would out come up with these? He is a great man, loving husband and created respect around the world for America!
          Holly is being patient but I would delete these hateful accusations which really, truly sound like the Bushes! Golfing and not paying attention to minorities aren’t a way to describe out last President. Sincerely yours, Robin Cochran
