    Truth is a medicine that is difficult to swallow when one's diet has been candy coated lies. We
    must get a 'Holder' ourselves to get well. (Report) Reply

    Hey, this is nice! I may apply this as like the thought of my poem 'No Love No Dream'. Hope any one who read this may open the mind. An eye opener piece! I lie it. This is true not only to the country relation but to a family relation that needs honesty, trust, transparency, bravery and unity for the best. I rate you 10. (Report) Reply

    Such powerful words emerging from within, the prospect of the nation claimed as cowards would tremble if only there was a consolidating theme that would create a riot.

    I like this piece. Your expressed truth and feelings about the world, I believe not only in America this pain is felt. Its a brave approach to face the facts on evils every government has constituted in its laws and continue to. Great write. (Report) Reply

    Another One” is unafraid to tell the Truth,
    “This One” is dissecting the false myth,

    I love this line it's the phrase that phased me the most. (Report) Reply

    10/10 material. Literature incessantly reminds us of the wilted truth behind the American Dream and our so-called 'freedom' that many come to discover, only to find themselves empty-handed. Ah, but still, there is hope. Very good poem! ! ! (Report) Reply

    they teach us in school about the things you tell....we see them on t.v.....but we never really understand....we pity the people who live in despair....but still we never understand....your words open a new light.....the truth strait from the source...when you see things with your own eyes and hear things with your own ears it changes the perspective....

There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
