Where Will It End?

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”- Martin Luther King Jr.

Blue Madonna tainted, scorned
devoured by the demands of the world
now she’s but a shell weary and worn
a skeleton where once flesh and bone
flourished in the light of sunshine and love

Now hateful words spew forth spilling
blood if skin is not the color of your own
a country divided… the blessed credo
‘Love One Another’ torn apart and
women are not valued for their worth

So Mother Earth sighs from all the abuse
as she’s beaten into a climactic submission
and everyone cries- ‘What’s the use
I’m only one person, what can I do?’
but what we fail to realize is this…
It starts with me and you and you
