Politics fills the gap where common sense once reigned
To be a politician is to seek to regain it, or abstain from it, forever
.. and find supporters
who undoubtedly feel the same
Don't place your fears on my shoulders
Each of us has burden enough to carry,
I need not extra
Of course black lives matter
Equal value for equal lives
In equal measure
at unjustified attacks upon life
or be silent
I wanna fall asleep in the arms of my love
and awake in those same arms
I need to re-read , a clash of civilizations..
now's the time
The real issue behind the issue is land
It's possible to fight for so long...
that the reason for fighting becomes lost
No country divided can truly be at ease
Nigeria for example, needs an equal distribution of wealth and opportunity
Look to the North
look further than your own family
Are we not all kin?
let 'opportunity for all'
be a slogan we can all support
..or chant no slogan at all
Love really is stronger than hate
..yet we struggle to define love
..an often , fear it
Let love guide our thoughts, and our penmanship
.. and then the pen, really will be mightier than the sword
.. but only then.
Even if my words fall on deaf ears
lord may they touch that which matters most
Sometimes I think...
and I wonder
