On the topic, the poem was very good and thanks for sharing. It's too bad we have so many ingrates in this country which is destroying the beauty that was America.


Very Well Said, American and Proud!

On the side note: Tulani's poem is indeed.. Very beautiful (Bonita) and well written!!! Gracias for sharing! =)

little man

with the dimming of the sky into twilight
he cries out at the darkness with all comsumming fright

the world of his fantasy is failing his reality
no longer do his words have brutality

he frails out at the darkness, unable to control his destiny
It envelopes his here and now...never will he return to his boyhood dream
of world beholding to his every command
to have to share power was never his plan

Oh cry out little man...
