And I Wonder


I wonder What I want will it ever be giving to me in this life?
I am still fighting for the right to bear knowledge.
I wonder about the one, you know created elegantly,
like a very fine girl that doesn't have my time.
But for no reason always on the mind.
I wonder about the roll call when the last call for Heaven going to come.
I wonder does quoting my heroes make me a different person?
Does wanting to be all I can be only mean joining the army?
If we don't explore we find ourselves coasting facing uncertain destinations.
Freedom of speech is silented by our government
and the company we keep.
So the knowledge, information we have don't hit our tonques.
We die a chamber of secrets, beings of lies and big hopes,
finding ways to get by, make a way to our dreams
and peace with those we hold close.

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
