*******************Fight For Right***********9/9/79


as sure as there is a rising sun
and a descending night.
some day little black children and
little white children will no longer fight.

the irish and the british will
someday see eye to eye
for it is irelands dream
and they must continue to try and try.

dreams are made by small men and women
with a perserverance that won't give up
and if their dreams were to shatter
someone else will pick up the slack.

a man once said 'he dreamt of a machine that
would one day fly'
well! that dream has come true
but he's not around to try.

so don't even give up on your dreams
for a lot of them become realities.

we may not get the things we want
and we may struggle all our lives
and even if we do fail
our children will contain the light.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
