Prologue - Poem by AHO Speaks

My poetry is of thoughts and ideas that have come along
As I walked the way of life and heard her pretty song.
It is also of thoughts and ideas put into rhyme
Subjects that are free from the specter of time.

Most of what I say has been said many times in the past
Even written in books but the meaning seldom did last.
Often what I did was done in haste rather than in time
The meaning found in the words and not the rhyme.

Words such as love, children, God, sister and brother
Phrase's as 'peace be with you' and 'love one another'.
A vocabulary of destruction and armaments we often hear
To destroy any nation's children whom they hold dear.

A weapon is either defensive or offensive so they say
But it is a veil to hide its purpose of another to slay.
The children cry, 'we are the world' and yet they go to war
Is it so difficult to leave them a peaceful world we never saw?

A world of resources that are used to build, solve and share
For a life that is not to take or destroy but to care.
A world where life is gentle, joyful and even a pleasure
Where individuals contribute to the earthly treasure.

When we depart; our love, caring and sharing we will take
All else on earth to remain and so therefore to forsake.
