Poets For Change - Poem by Eric Cockrell

poets for change...
from all walks of life,
all nationalities,

different educational levels,
diverse viewpoints respected,
male and female, young and old....

shedding light on the human condition.
daring to question, to defy
all weight of gravity to silence...

bringing a cup of water to the thirsty,
compassionate ears and hands involved.
from heart to heart, soul to soul,

with honest eyes speaking....
and passionate belief in all that lives!

    shedding light on the human condition.
    daring to question, to defy

    This is key, demanding government serve the will of the people, doing what is best for all people; instead of stripping citizens of freedom of rights, under a blanket terrorism charge which allows supposed democracy dictatorship powers.
