Persian Nightingale

Voice of Conscience

Prisoners of conscience

Realm of power
An understood condition
An understood provision
A misunderstood criticism
A misunderstood question
A guilty conscience

Conscious scruples
A clear conscience

    A well written tribute to President Barack Obama, who just might sort out the mess left by a (nameless) ex-president... (Report) Reply

    Time will tell, if a man who sits in a Church of God pastored by a minister who uses God's name in vein in his sermon, andpublicly promotes bigotry, can remove himself from his liberal past, and bring this Nation together....He's here, as the majority of my fellow Americans have spoke...and thats Democracy, in its paradigm...And i would not have it any other way.
    As for your poem....excellent, indeed....With penning like this, perhaps Mr. Barack should have asked YOU to join his cabinet, either as a speechwriter or public relations secretary!
