In The Same Basket

Deep inside the anger rises
Each one standing by their choice,
Perpetrating bad behavior
Letting violence have a voice.
Oh, where have all the sane folk gone?
Rebelling when we disagree…
All of us must work together,
Become the change we want to see.
Let the flames of love unite us;
Erase the hate to make us free.

  1. If only this could be...
    Kind regards
    Anna :o]

  2. Thank you so much. I'm trying to remember, deplorable or not, these are my countrymen. We are all Americans.

  3. This is really a tough one. Well penned, Ginny.
