Conscious Awakening - Poem by Ruth Olsak

O' beautiful for spacious skies is where all this began,
With spoken words of truth on who God shed his grace on thee,
Our country has been blessed in more ways than we can see,
If only we would allow our eyes and our heart to lead the way,
Instead no, ever since the beginning of time people have gone astray,
Is this right or is it wrong,
They just could not decide,
Their faith in God washed ashore,
As temptation became their guide,
Temptation of the wrong kind took over like a river without an end,
Envy, selfishness, hatred and wars became mans closest friend,
Now the questions of our future lies in our own hands,
Is this the way we choose to continue or do we take a personal stand,
We all know we are not perfect,
It wasn't intended that way,
Although each of us has plenty good to offer,
Like love, peace and caring,
Wash away the wrong and bring in the right,
Open those eyes, have it finally become clear,
Life's abundance of goodness is all around us,
For starters yourself,
Because its a blessing that you are here.
