Biblical Granite

"The important thing is this: to be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become."

-- Charles DuBois

"America is false to the past, false to the present, and solemnly binds herself to be false to the future."
˜Frederick Douglass˜


In this life,

on this orb of endless possibilities,

Is it impossible to possibly have love and respect for one another?

Without the excuses of why the difference between different and equal

is just that.

Inequalities of the past has left us all stranded in time,

that fine line that divides yesterday, today and tomorrow.

Decide now decision makers,

or the WOW factor will be the before and after effect.

Leaving the future undecided for the next

as the beat goes on.

Thank you bbnix, you helped inspire me to write this one with the fan mail you left. I will write until my fingers break, knowing that I did my part.

Pace yourself my friend- we can't change the world if you're burnt out...or have broken fingers...:)

(although, interestingly, I have broken mine doing just that - but I have learned to calm down)
