    My eyes filled up with tears
    As they passed over the ruins of my childhood home
    My heart felt a heavy load
    And i knew at that very moment
    i'd have to build another road
    A road that stops the deterioration
    And navigates a path that dries my tears
    A road of new born preservation
    That makes my heart feel jubilant and calms my fears
    Daddy Hank built that house
    With his own mind and hands
    And the aid of my uncles
    i hear him now clearly and fully
    Saying, "This is my house and I'm the shack bully"
    Momma Ida was always so patient with him and us
    This house was her castle
    She never made a big fuss
    We will declare it a historical monument
    We will not wrassle
    With Government Bureacracies
    Bypass most of the hassle
    Make this dicision ourselves
    Not wait or try to convince the X-Salvemasters
    They have absolutely no idea of this value
    And some who do, want to make sure that we don't
    And that we will keep asking permission
    And keep seeking assistance
    For things that are in our own hands
    That we can do our ownselves

    RICH, Thank you...if we would effectively use the power that is now in our own hands we'd be in earthly heaven over night.....

    triniti, Sister, Thanx, here's to the continued nourishment of our souls........

    deepy, if we can properly focus on we, us, our...they, them and their will not be our problem anymore.......
