It’s our world, our planet
It needs a little support right now
Stretch out your hearts and demand it
Does anyone even know how?
Love, caring, and sharing
Uniting to become as one
How is your personal journey faring?
How do we know if we’ve won?
Do we always have to win?
It isn’t a puzzle or game
Who determines what is and isn’t sin?
Do we react just to acquire wealth and fame?
What does fame without health do for each of us personally
When it feels like everything is worsening?
Is it? Or is it measured by what we hear;
What we fear; what we hold dear; what brings us to tears?
So many questions and too few answers…
Look in the mirror, the reflection of each
Soul, person, mind, heart to reach and teach
Only what we know as truth, one at a time
About equality and how to nurture the future
How to tighten the ties in unity that bind
One to the other, lifting up the spirit of another
In peace, in support, “In God we trust…”
Don’t always be in a state of rush
Slow down and let yourself get grounded
Breathe in calmness and happiness
Let go and listen to the whisper of hushed tranquility and unity…
God Bless The United States of America
Have a happy, loving, safe 4th of July!

This is wonderful, a lovely poem.
Thank you. It’s not my usual 4th of July happy, happy, happy holiday fare, but this year the fears and tears for the violence in our world, on our planet, was pushed to the forefront of my mind and I was much more concerned and reflective. Thanks for caring!
