And From Your Ashes I Arise Ch 3

August 20, 2017

Antifa.

I wonder

And I know this may be hard to swallow

But

I’m curious

If—

And please

you have to understand

Where I am coming from

Hear me out—

Because I don’t want you to misunderstand me.

Or my questions.

My family were immigrants—

Refugees.

First Stalin

Then Hitler.

My father was a hard working man.

He hoped we would assimilate.

My mother was born in a Berlin bomb shelter.

Broken from the start.

They did the best they knew how

With what little they had.

We have so much now.

And so I wonder if the rise in discontent

And escalating violence

From a relatively small minority of anti-capitalists

Who seem to lack true purpose

And feel disenfranchised in a system

That demands self-reliance in order to survive—

The ones who fell through the cracks

Even though they were promised

“No child would be left behind.”

They were promised so much…

Now they have no real leader

And no trust in authority.

They believe in nothing

Except their own imaginations.

And they hate.

Calling it love they hate.

If given half a chance

They would do

The same as their enemy did

And worse.

A pity.

So much potential lost.

And there is

Much work to be done.

When Earth needs us most.

And they still have their youth…

Is this rise in violence

From a relatively small-group

Of self-styled disenfranchised individuals

Who aren’t happy

With their station in life–

And are looking to blame

Anyone

For their suffering

And perceived lack–

In fact a response to

Civilized societies

Abandoning

Natural

Laws?

Just a question.

What is it you want?

Because right now all I hear is a whole lot of crying

“We want…”

Wait–

Ohhh…

I get it now.

Look.

I too

wanted to change

the world “for the better.”

I was no different

at your age.

Full of fear

and misunderstanding

hope and expectations.

I was so sure of myself.

But what did I know

about anything?

Least of all myself.

So I did things to

change myself

“for the better”.

I’d like to think

I’m succeeding.

Slowly…

I’d like to think

we are all succeeding.

In so many ways.

It may not seem

like much to you now.

But wait…

You will see.

If you look

inside your own heart

And discover the Truth:

The kingdom of heaven is within.

The change you so desperately

want is right here right now!

Generously, graciously, given

not taken by force

or coercion.

It is a gift.

And it is beautiful.

Song For The Other Side

We are living in chaotic times

And WE ARE AT WAR!

A nasty ideological

Bloody psychological war.

The battlefield is the mind.

And each time WE

By OUR thoughts words and deeds

Cause more discord–

It is a victory for the enemy.

All across the globe

we see this

brutal attack

on society.

A cancer spreading

throughout humanity.

Disregard for decency.

BUT THIS IS AMERICA.

LAND OF THE FREE.

In GOD we trust BRAVERY.

The oppressive progressive

political ideology

infiltrated

true democracy

but you are too blind to see

the hypocrisy—

or how you are

REPEATING HISTORY!

Blood on your hands in foreign lands…

KILL OFF THE BEST

save the rest

for your

CLASSLESS SOCIETY!

EQUITY

When we are

ALL

Equally living in poverty!

Except for a few

too many on top

this has to STOP

who

Dictate—Command—Decree

YOUR ABSOLUTE COMPLIANCE TO

THE SOCIALIST PARTY!

Slaves to the

socialist state

no longer free

living in fear

too afraid to see.

Now close

your eyes

and I’ll sing

you

a song

of a place

where:

no one has more than you

no one will envy you

no one will ever make you cry…
