There Was A Cure Not That Long Ago.

There Was A cure...Not Long Ago.

There was a cure for cancer, not so long ago
it was a surefire solution,
to all sub cellular malignancies
but it's host died in 1969,
in the steamy jungles of Vietnam

with the last gasp of a future medical student
who was sacrificed to the war machines
sure...the economy was boosted for a while
but hundreds of thousands fell victim to the diseases
he could have, and would have cured.

There was also a solution... to feeding the hungry
on a world wide scale,
it would have become
a seed in a brain so smart
that it's output would have
genetically altered
all farm crops...worldwide
causing them to produce
year round, in any climatic conditions,
in GIGANTIC proportions..
enough sustenance for all

but.....
she was aborted
in the second trimester
as a matter of convenience,
to avoid any embarrassment
by a young lady who wished
to finish school
by the way......

the former mother-to-be
runs a snack bar, in a bowling alley
with two more unwanted kids,
placed in foster homes
as a matter of convenience...
to avoid future embarrassment
for her next lover's visit
and she never finished school

There were, and are
many brilliant minds
many solutions to our problems
many future hopefuls
crushed on a daily basis...

Murdered, overdosed, impoverished
uneducated, under financed
unloved, discouraged
suicidal.... ignored

tomorrows come, and go
without their valued input
whole sections of societies
deleted-
like the trash found on our e-mails
and we all suffer the consequences.

There is a God in all of this
who weeps for what could have been
but he chose to give men freewill
rather then to control men like robots
obeying his...and only his commands

he sees the problems that beset the earth
and he sends us the solutions
wrapped in the flesh of newborns

But in man's excessive need for greed
in his continuous hunt for power
in his unquenchable hunger for lust
in his self-centered, self-serving manner
these gifts sent are destroyed
one after another

while the problems go on
without solutions
yet still God sends down more answers
hoping this will change
willingly, and freely
by the choices of men

And this God does not belong
to any "one group"
or any "one faith"
for that would surely
violate man's freewill
by denying them choices

even an atheist has gods
power, money, worldly gain
a quick, and final death
with nothing eve after
they are the atheist
strongest desires
and the atheist worships them

with just as much faith
as a ninety-year old nun
His choice...her choice
freewill...not robotics
the heart of each person
knows the true path
and chooses his own direction
so be it!

and please do not attempt
to kill the messenger
this was an inspiration
It is not a belief
it is not a soul belief of mine
it just called to me
like all thoughts do
to put it down

to save it for posterity
for in every work
there lies some truth
and one must make it known

for what is a poet
without a voice??
what is a writer
without readers??
so enjoy these thoughts penned
if you will
or deny them vehemently
it is your choice

it is freewill
and the next time
you pass a graveyard
look upon it fondly
for therein might lay
the answers to all the questions
we've yet to uncover
the solutions to all the problems
we've failed to overcome

and the next time
you pass a nursery
or a pregnant woman
look fondly on them too
and fight for their futures

take a stand for education
take a stand against poverty
against war
against crime
just take a stand
against all of the evil
perpetuated by men, on men

and maybe...just maybe
some day soon
one of these gifts
God sends us will get through
maybe more
maybe tomorrow can be brighter
maybe not

it is our choice
freewill
mankind
choose your direction
and Godspeed
to us all
