    I am not sure the sun is in my face.:SuN019:

    Thus begins the people’s resistance
    to changing the conditions you find that you’re living.

    No lights, no trash on your streets we bear.
    No blue or black police cars parked watching you stare.
    Back at those with guns, sworn to protect and serve.

    Fallen rock and debris around your earth quaked city.
    Hollow out the rock, searching for bodies in rubble.

    Spraying mind control pesticide
    on you mosquito’s in a city.

    Invisible strangle hold.
    I wish I could see.

    The hold and control they have over me.

    Never mind.

    I am strong.
    I am standing again.

    I speak; I can still see
    they are on a killing spree.

    Clustered together,
    will choke even a fish,
    no oxygen in the water belly up dead is their wish.

    Smelling covered with cologne
    from the department store.

    Rotten fish stinks in three days
    what are you waiting for?

    Trying to get ready for another day of work.
    No time to address the deprivation of mind.

    Break my sprit, no never, god is powerful I know.
    He sustains me I know the real truth.
    whew....:em3300:

    The extent that some will go to to cover the truth, makes us sometimes question what we know to be reality. I like the way you ended this piece, God centers us and clears our minds. Always good to read you Hodee.

    sets you free

    hopefully in another dimension this life force

    can be a force that doesn't need resistance to survive
