Poem:Dust to dust , one earth!

Updated on March 6, 2012

Dust to dust, one earth

I felt every word

that he sang

I heard him say

His lyrics made

every one become

quite emotional

feeling real proud.

His voice went

the loudest

he became

the noise like

new kids again

playing with toys.

Seeing the veins

as they protruded

bulging under the

skin on his neck,

his face, even

in his head.

As an air of

true patriotism

that's what his

song was about

the dead involved

his expressions

went through

the crowd as the

vibrations made

them really excited.

Heard a man said

Come what may

right here is where

we are all going

to stay.

Is where we belong.

That’s when It hit me

that this surprise

of a song was going

to be none other

than pride itself!

Born in the USA!

Well I was not,

Though I was not

that song always

Made me feel

It was that way.

I listened every

word that man

"Bruce" had to say.

I had listened :

No surrender

even if you were

only gonna be

dancing in the dark.

I felt the power

and even up to

this very day

I am reminded

that all of mankind

was truly born here.

When it was all

just one earth

Thank god when

Give thanks that

it's still is one earth

in the eyes of God

For when man dies

he body welcomes

this beautiful dirt!

No man is an island

No island is a country

No country can by

itself be the world

But all of mankind

From the island to

That Country the

valleys and all seas

They must all make

up the this beauty

That is God's one earth!

For without the

Other men

What’s will any

one man be worth?

Dust to dust, one earth.

      You are simply one of a kind billy. Most time in live we work real hard all our life to find the meaning of our life . When found it's a beautiful thing because it strengthens you and give you that reason, but it attracts , envy and jealousy. Why because you have found that which all of life is seeking.

      They will come after you in every way, and I know you have found something quite rare, I know so.

      But always be strong because what you have found is the answer, and what they have are questions a match that should be made in Heaven and if it is , this is earth.

      I leave you there my brethren.

      I am already stuck , so if I run out , which I doubt , I will still be reading.

      What happens with me here is the connection that people keeps lighting, why should a bird fly on one wing, when he has two?

      I'll be over shortly and collect my full. lol. Keep up the great work and I thank you!

      You got some beautiful virtues inside and I know ,,so you shall continue bringing deep things to life's table . Keep it up . That movie with Denzel and Tom H I believe , that was massive and deep, hence the tears.

      Thanks Katrine for seeing further it's a great pace you are setting for yourself, so keep you in the race . That piece I read yesterday day is great . Keep sharing freely, could not help with your question this day. But I tell you what I qow what I write until I sell them. So I can use them anyplace I like , for now for my practice here I share , and they all contain a message that I need so it's mine .

      God bless dear lady.

      No one could make others more proud of their country than Bruce could. But Americans don't take the leader position on being proud of their country other do too. You're right in the end we all become as one. That's why I keep on believing because the Lord will all look at us equally. God bless.

      Hi, it's a lovely song and a poem.

      I think the message you're trying to send out there is that no matter where we are born, in front of God we are all same, equal.

      I think my most favorite song by Bruce is 'Streets of Philadelphia' from the movie 'Philadelphia'. When I first watched that film I was very young, and it made me cry. That song will always be so deeply stuck in my mind. Blessings.

      Thanks Hyphen I am going to look fort your hub , could you remember the name?

      There are things that I believe in this life and I am not ever going to back down on them till I find an answer, and that answer can only come from the Most High God. There is a reason for everything and the things with m,e am bent on knowing.

      I am thrilled that you like the Boss , because I do too,I have always looked for the lyrics and what it says to me sincerely.

      Always a beautiful sight sight seeing you around here Hyphen . God Bless you and yours.

      sky! Bruce is one of my all time favorite performers, an amazingly talented singer and I even wrote a Hub about him. I enjoyed the song and how you spiritually linked him to bigger, better things.

      Good write-up on Bruce. This song, more than others, is a tribute to his creativity. Thanks for sharing.

      Thanks brethren Frank . You are with ease the smoothest, and you should know by now that your repetition precedes you. When bruce first sang this mannnnnnnnn! and dancing in the dark , and as I look not back right beside me , read billy buc piece on alcoholics.

      I await my brethren only a few more steps and then it's off the launch pad.

      Take a great look , lets go bro.

      Stay positive .
