Greatness

Oh, where have we come

This generation of mine

We cry of freedom

Without the blood

We cry of rights

While screaming, “No, No,

No sacrifice”

Then they die

Suddenly they are heroes.

We are not meant to sit still

But only till instruction comes

Whether it be seen or hid

It is my purpose

 

(first April poem a day. Prompt based on “One will never be great in this land lying quiet and domesticated, nor will one ever be that violent and bloody)

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. Recently I have begun writing a couple of blogs. One poetry and one on hope. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused. Soon to be added is another blog...writings on hope from a biblical perspective. Now it can be seen at purplepandasandotherphenomena.blogspot.com. please feel free to visit.
