    I was walking down the street
    Sweating non stop in the heat
    Looking around the city
    Seeing the homeless, feeling pity
    Our country is really dumb
    Cold in the heart and real numb
    We start to many wars
    Shutting freedom in the face with doors
    We stand for freedom, but do we
    Killing people who aren't like us, can't you see
    We don't let anybody that's different be
    We can't even take care of our homeless
    We just stick our noses in others business
    All I see in the U.S. is one big mess
    With a rising in the unemployment rate
    Gee wonder why I’m mad and I hate
    We spend people’s salaries on war
    Killing innocent people and in the end what for
    I’m sad that our taxes go towards blood money
    When we could be solving our own issues in this country
    I can’t believe I’m stuck here being a part of this
    Don’t tell me this is all for the best
    Tell that to the murdered, the homeless, and the rest
    Murder seems to be what this country is good at
    Everyone think and take a good look at that
    One person can’t make a difference
    But many can break down the fence
    To be a part of this hatred I’m not proud
    Blood shed, hatred, pain, how does that sound
    Put yourself in the middle of that blood filled place
    Can you look those people in the face?
    That’s it, end of the case!

    Yes, what a terrible web we weve. And no you can't make a stand...ALONE, nor can I or anybody else. We have to UNITE...to make a difference. This poem is certainly on time. It brings us to the realization that we're fighting the wrong war.
    thank you for the time and knowledge you add to this.

    You said a world full!
    We are living in a
    country that is
    a** backwards
    and it seems we
    as citizenz are
    powerless to correct
    this pattern!
    Deeply felt!
