A Political Comment - Poem by Mignon Isaacs Bryant

When life has laughed at my beliefs,
When sharp reproval makes me meek,
When worlds at large have taught me shame,
And work towards joy left me to blame.
When disapproval rules the strong,
When unknown sources say what's wrong,
When people always on the brink
Of war, can dictate what to think
It's then that we, the people who
Know our values, strong and true,
Can shut the doors on what we fear.
There's little time for doubting here.
That's not how we will live our lives.
We're the ones who care.
Don't feed us lies.

    a nice theme of concept, well versed and rhymes except for the last stanza..
    a suggestion..the last couplets will rhyme too..as it could be written as;
    We're the ones who care
    Don't feed us lies, don't dare.

    the whole concept was good...keep on writing...
