    Eric Cockrell is on facebook every day, still writing about freedom, equality, human rights, poverty, all the themes he always wrote and we valued so much. I still read some of Eric's poetry daily. They are gone from here now, Eric Cockrell 23rd January 2013, Gregory Uhan (Uhan, Gregory Allen) March 2013, Terence George Craddock June 2013 and Miroslava Odalovic March 8th,2014 busy now writing another book. They still flutter past on facebook but I miss the time when they were here. When once we shared poetry on this site: (

    Hi Eric, you write too much, I'm jealous. You really are like a Buddhist Priest at his temple.

    His voices

    Those voices
    Come from somewhere far
    Far, far away..in a man. a man
    A man who travel by his mind
    Who has nothing but honest heart
    A man who candles light in his voice

    His words utterly heard
    Wander through the world
    With his wisdom played
    In every song he sings
    About pieces to be whole
    About scar to get healed

    Still far, far away
    Journey of him to bright
    To stop and sing his own melody
    Cheer people with his words
    Who believe in love

    Those voices
    I still hear today
    From a same man
    who still offers his heart
    for us learning something
    For us taking from his experiences
    So now i singing my own song
    for a man who sing us for long
    A man of far, far away
    But very near near inside Eric Cockrell
    Who is a man, where the candled sound comes

    Dedicate to Eric Cockrell
    By Unwritten Soul

Best Poem of Eric Cockrell

Civil Disobedience

civil disobedience...
daring acts of courage?
peaceful rebellion.

when, by choice, the freedom
of one is sacrificed for the
freedom of many.

believing that all men, and
women, are indeed equal...
in needs, rights, beliefs, and desire.

believing that no man
ever owns another man....
that dignity is not for sale.

believing that no man, or woman,
is ever free until all are free....
and all share the right to respect,

and the right to be individual,
with the need for community.
obeying the law of liberty

over the ...

The Hand

only the human hand,
the caring hand,
the hand covered in blood
and filth, the hand swollen

bruised, and beaten...
the open hand,
not a fist anymore hand,
not afraid to let go hand,
