To be the change we seek
These mysteries that bury me, endless shame of mysery.
Images designed to imprison me, flash along so endlessly.
Streets littered in poverty, small children starve ungracefully .
As the rich are praised with majesty, profit worshipped in tragedy.

Since the birth of history, these kings have never let us be free.
They force beliefs wrapped so magically, promising in death tranquility.
Many generations in humility, letting things run diligently .
Giving government luxury, on the backs of slavery. 

The people rise first orderly, nonviolence the cry of victory.
Fists raised with sullen dignity, shoulder to shoulder in cries of equality.
Slowly we waken from travesty, we look to each other so compatibility.
We see the light of possiabliity of dreams of sustainability.
Now is the time for agility, to lean the art of adaptability.
Seeking the center on humanity, nuture thoughts with sympathy, to change the face with honesty.
To be the change we seek.

Very inspirational Regan,
I liked your approach. You not only talk about the problems, but show some solutions as well. Huge problems in the world at the moment to be tackled, and each kind needs its own specific type solution. The complexity is that, the social, economical and idealogical problems are intertwined tighter than ever, posing a great challenge internationally for all of us to tackle them. Honesty is a necessity, but not enough.

A great read, enjoyed it
