Sickness Of America - Poem by Eric Cockrell

the sickness of America
began within each of us....
when we chose

profit over compassion,
self fulfillment over community,
success over family....

possessions over our neighbors,
indulgence over ecology,
lifestyle over spirituality....

oil addiction over fair treatment,
invasion over liberation,
special interests over equality....

for real change to be possible,
real healing must take place....
it too, begins within!
