    Is it me?
    Am I the only one, feeling that something has been left
    undone.
    Am I the only one?
    Sleepless in KC, wondering what is about to be.
    Not worried, but pondering, as the war machines align.
    When men of power leave all common sense behind.

    Is is it me?
    Watching the unemployment statistics reach fatalistic.
    Icon's falling, Martha balling...and not making nice.
    Corporate America showing it's bare naked ***.
    Exposed for all the world to see.
    Is it me?
    Sleepless in KC, thinking what can I do, other than scribe?
    Praying and reassuring that a far greater leader does control even GBush...no PUSH...they told us to stay out of the bushes.
    But the ughly head kept right on pushing.

    Is it me?
    Perturbed by what I see.
    Mass murderess rampages with no rhyme or reason.
    White folks running around screaming high treason.
    Sleepless in KC, not for me, for the collective.
    While you slumber, my spirit travels, my centuries old
    spirit seeks to unravel, mysteries of delusions of grandeur.
    Politicians have never been known to be pure.
    But, church folks and good folks are losing their minds.
    Promoting self hatred, exploitation , manipulation and
    nothing divine...what did we leave behind.

    Is it me?
    Does anyone else see?
    This can't be God's intended reality.
    Or could it?
    So many questions, and no answers have I.
    But, I will keep on questing until I die.
    Sleepless in KC... Is it just me?

    Many of us our sleepless about the very same things just in different parts of the country. If we keep questioning, then some answers may come, the others may just give us understanding. This was a tyte piece.

    thank you for your conscious scribe... loving it from top to bottom, but especially your opening:

    Is it me?
    Am I the only one, feeling that something has been left
    undone.
    Am I the only one?
    Sleepless in KC, wondering what is about to be.
    Not worried, but pondering, as the war machines align.
    When men of power leave all common sense behind.


    that "when men of power leave all common sense behind"...
    tell the truth.

    And no, we need not worry, but we must stay alert/informed. I do trust that He that is in us, is greater than he that is in the world.

    thank you for this, always a joy to read you.

    Thank y'all!

    Yes we must remain vigilante and aware, and it's so good to know that other people still care about what is going on out here, I was beginning to believe tha the only way we could have this much corruption, and this much death and destruction, misery and strife is cause people don't care. Now I know it's just "SOME" people that don't care! Thank each of you that took time to read...let's spread love and knowledge!
    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSE!
