I watch the same NEWS as you
You watch the same NEWS as me
Yet I don’t think we come that far
With rape, stabbings, shootings, war
Robbing, neglect, cruelty, police brutality
A turbulent sea of unethical behavior by
Political, governmental and business leaders
Religious fanaticism flying over the mark
The streets are filled with giant potholes
People are starving, soldiers and civilians dying
There’s some reported research – happiness found
Some good NEWS stories read with a smile
But all the while that’s what I strive for to have
And focus on her beauty – her redeeming truth
In her beauty and nurturing instincts, nurturing soul
While all around there’s devastation from abuse
What a waste of life, natural resources and honor
Whereas someday I hope to change the NEWS forever
Best of the Yellow Roses,
-light, love & joy-
