*God, Give me another place to look Please allow me to turn my face away I'm old and wise enough To know that what I'm seeing is not right And young enough in my heart To be unable to understand Why this,I cannot fight? Why do I have to walk away My head hung in shame? A larger force Tells me there is nothing I can do Buut a great force (Lord, I believe that's YOU) Put this gut wrenching pain in me To remind me there is something I HAVE TO DO.. How did this once beautiful land We All called HOME Become a house of concentration camps? As they rip your children from your arms They tell them... "It'll be just like summer camp" "THEY" say, taking your precious kids To large fenced boxes With a mat and ONLY A 15cent thermal blanket To keep the cold and loneliness away.. When ALLL they were looking for (like EVERY immigrant before them) WAS a safer place to stay! Fighting against all odds Just to try to show their children There can be a BETTER way.. Pieces of me are dying inside Because I'm afraid TO RAISE MY VOICE For These, the little ones Who have NEVER known What it is to be free.. In sooo many ways One by one We take away their liberties. SO, actually Father spirit DON'T let me look away Just because it's easier for ME Then it is, turning to face THEM And their wrongful suffering.. The good ol' land of the free And it's Governmental forced misery .. Give me the strength to look and to face These AWFUL truths... Help me find the answers AND the inner power To know what NEXT to do.. May this prose and poetry Be but, just the 1st step In this on-going Treacherous Yet Purposeful journey.

lovenotes_from_carolynI'm cheering you on from this little corner of the universe Renee! Look at all you've already overcome in your life! A tremendous amount!! That's why you've got to view the health problems and whatever else as nothing more than a puny nuisance. You got this, and we got you!! ❤✊
