Any other way? Why is it that we wonder-
On the same thing we ponder?

Life is not assuring,
Everything so alluring us,

To a place of which we not know.
To a place of which we find various ways to grow.

What is it within us, to hate with a vengeance?
And it's only our race, our creed or military to avenge us.

Some think that it's proper to take over the weak,
As the ones that take punishment when they turn the other cheek.

Why aggression plays role to this "civilization".
We find it an oxymoron with problems of nations.

Has our love been so lost, that each of us render,
To the point of great loss, the loved ones surrender.

The aggressors look down, and forget of the soul,
That could reach out and bring us to our life's ending goal.

Who knows more than the feeling inside of us all.
Who knows the aggressor, that makes another soul fall.

Can we look inside a see the soul that is there?
An aggressor cannot, with his arms to bear.

Now the power is mans to make turn of our earth,
But the point of it all is there any left worth?

The destruction has over excelled what we had,
Taking the goodness of life to to be scorned and be sad.

We look and we ask "How can we continue"?
When the power, the glory, is only part of man's menu.

For rejection of power, in this fate that has turned,
Only our Love is the part not to be burned.

Live, Live quietly, speak softly, understand all you can-
Your friends and the ones you love must take that stand.

To turn the other cheek, and feel slight pain
Watch closely that it will not happen again.

Give unto others, your love is worth most
For believe we are all brothers, who did not want this boast-

Of power and murder that plundered our plight'
Just do to the loss of an unreasonable fight.

Will the Grace of God stop us, and end what we do?
I'm sure we'll not find out until HE is finally through.

Writer Profile
Timothy G. Branfalt Sr.

We are all within each other. When that is realized, our prejudice and communication interference will be that of telepathic communication. We will be one with each other and one with the world. These bodies are only temporary forms that keep us restricted from our own heavenly place.
It is only a temporary restriction, especially upon those who intend to use their "physical attributes" with just the selfish, social advancement of themselves.
If this world had started to gain acceptance and understanding of all problematic errors within, we may have been able to share these "advancements" with our brothers and sisters, who are NOW--not later--in danger, not from the immediate natural disasters, but of those that will not surrender the help they need to overcome their immediate handicaps.
The ones of unshared power with food, shelter, clothing, and then to add the militia.
The militia could have been justified, if its intentions were there for the less fortunate, not to take more from the unfortunate.
I live on my lifelong work of gathering a pension, which is paid back to me only due to many years of work. Others work hard, and see nothing. All I have to Always say is "Me casa, es Su casa!", Mucho Amore e "Pura Vida!"

Sorry ! Missed an Edit!
