My Letter to the World and a Poem of Awakening

Dear Corrupt America and The World,

Every country that has ever hated America for the freedoms we had, can now feel at ease to know that we are fast progressing, in my opinion, to becoming one of the worst places to live. We are tremendously divided. I cannot even remember when it really felt like a freedom type of sanctuary.

People here are greedy and selfish and care about themselves more than the hungry children living in poverty and in homeless shelters. Most people, here in America, have no want to help others anymore. It's all about ego and who lives in the biggest house with the fanciest car. It's about being able to travel across the world and then come home and talk shit about the people that just welcomed you to theirs.

I mean, that is what you are doing, right? You visit not only places like Paris now; you go to India, and Morocco, and Egypt, and all the while saying Muslims are our enemies and the reason we are dying here in America. Please people, stop lying to yourselves. You continue to breed a hatred that when I wake every morning to more news on killings here and people playing the blame game, I get more and more sick to my stomach. The hopeless feeling I get is overwhelming.

There are still some of us that will not do under handed things to gain wealth and claim we worked for every cent. We will not complain about America becoming a country of all faiths and religion, because that is what it always has been and what it consistently should be. We are indeed not the ones trying to change amendments and build walls, but we are the ones who inevitably will suffer for it when you succeed in getting your way.

The countries that have hated us for our independence, can now finally pity us for our lack of intelligence and greed.


An Innocent and suffering human

The Similarities Are Stunning... Vote For Him, Bury Us As A Nation


The Bitter Truth


Are You As Worried As I Am About Our Deteriorating World?

See results

None of Which Donald Trump Has... I Implore Americans Not To Vote For Him


Destruction of A Nation. Wake Up America!

Shame on us, we are a world

being destroyed by hatred

and divergence, completely

lacking of human urgence.

Dictators are of American

breed now, no leaders here

with empathy, just scornful

blows of apathy.

Tell me, what do you see

in our future, a formidable and

sinister ultimatum? That kind

of ignorance is surreal defamation.

Inconceivable outcomes in

my eyes; these taunting tyrants

whom sell us lies. If you go

forth you are demon guised.

America, you must wake up!

This is not a game. Humankind will

Dissipate, and even the innocent

will take the blame.

Humble and Kind. That's All It Takes...

      Yes, we have been heading downhill so fast. I want to keep faith it will turn around someday, for all of our sakes. However, it doesn't look promising, does it?

      Your poem speaks so much in so few words. We have been headed south for quite a while now, which is due to our apathy.

      Thank you, Paula. Yes, that indeed is my daughter Kiersten Kiara, who I call Kiki. I thought a brilliant nickname since the first two letters of both names spell it out. She doesn't care for it. lol. She stands taller than her mother now at 15 years old.

      I hope the insanity will at least die down one day, but only time will tell. The struggle is definitely real.

      Hey girl....You've nailed this Missy by bringing out the reality of what is happening and disintegrating before our very eyes. This is an emotion-stirring read from beginning to end.....very moving truths.

      Each day is a struggle to keep our hopes alive....will we ever stop the insanity? A wonderful poem, Missy. Thank you.

      (Is that you & your daughter? She's precious. You look like "sisters!!")

      Hey Junko, it seems so easy doesn't it? The cruel reality is, it is indeed probably that facile, but no one cares to accept their faults just because they want what they want and will never accept what they feel will not get them that. We all know what that is; They want President Obama to pay for being a really good "black" president, and they want not to listen to reason on issues like gun control, and it's not because they are not smart enough to see he is not trying to take their amendment away. It's only because it's him wanting to make a positive change. It's this type of selfish, racist, greed that is killing this world. Thank you for commenting and God Bless!

      That's a really good question, MizBejabbers. I was wondering that very same thing recently. If things keep going like they are, I would be brave enough to say it is indeed our karma. Well, at least karma on the ones who have sat back and believed in their own selfish greed and wants to rule this world. The devout Christians who can turn their ears and eyes away and make excuses for a man such as Donald Trump. That's like voting for the devil himself. I'm ashamed of the hypocritical family members, friends, and acquaintances I know who promise they love a God who if they really studied his word, they would not be at all for such a person. We need love, peace, and unity for everyone, not walls, judgments, and free-range killing sprees. The sad thing is, their karma will inevitably destroy us all in the crossfire of what I call their betrayal. It's not God's fault. He will have to do what needs to be done.

      "If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and heal their land."

      Missy, your poetry is truth. (Very good, I might add.) It is in some ways an illusion that this country was the great kind benevolent entity that the world thought it was. Truthfully, it was built on genocide, broken treaties, slavery and lies. Yet we say "aren't we great!" Is this our Karma?

      It is quite depressing, Bill and Venkat. I am not sure at all how we will turn it around either. The people that see the real picture of truth and try to bring it to light for those who are so easily ruled by greed and hate, seem to sigh with discouragement when another of their attempts fails.

      I do not understand how so many see hate as the answer. How is building walls going to free us from destruction? That will only breed more resentment and hate.

      No matter what religion we worship, we all are supposed to have the common denominator of wanting a sense of community. However, how can that happen if we stay divided even within our own religion?

      What is Christian? What is Muslim? And so on and so forth... We cannot say anymore that everyone that worships these religions are on the same page with their brothers and sisters. One Christian may say that the Orlando victims deserved death as the bible preaches against same-sex relations, while another Christian may say that God sent Jesus to die for all sin, and we should love everyone regardless. I mean, how do we make a compromise within any religion these days? It is scary.

      There are too many views of how things should be, but not enough common sense to tackle the big picture. To actually look inside ourselves and trust God to lead us in the right vision of how he would want it to be. I know one thing; it's definitely not by out-casting and building walls and stirring the hate pot. We are destroying humankind and nature through the process. :( Thanks for commenting. ~Missy

      We have been slowly eroding as a nation. Sadly I'm not sure how we turn it around. The only thing that makes me feel good is knowing there are caring people like you who balance the scales a bit. Keep caring, Missy!

      I agree with you, Missy. The world is deteriorating day-by-day due to our selfishness, greed and hatred.

      I can identify with what you say here, Stella. My children are very young yet, but as of now; one is more thoughtful than the other. Sometimes, we can teach all the right values, but one will be more susceptible to learning them than the other. However, we must keep instilling the values and hope for the best. I have faith that as my youngest gets older, that he will start realizing more and more of how vital it is to be a gracious human being. :)

      Thank you, Whonu. I really woke up this morning not seeking inspiration, but found it in the latest tragedy of our world; the shootings in Orlando. I wish all who experienced this tragedy and made it out alive and the families who will now suffer incredible loss, a million blessings to live on through this tragedy. These type tragedies are beginning to plague our existence here on Earth. It's time to come together. Not keep a division. I hope one day we find a way to do this. ~Missy

      Thank you Missy, I have 8 grandkids so it is hard to take all of this sometime. Your generation could change all of this again. With out morals there can be no change for this country. I have taught my kids to respect everyone and I see them do that. My son is 40 years old when I see him open a door for elderly people, I know there is still hope. I have another one that lives the way of the world, good heart, but no morals. I just pray for her and hope for a change. You have children, never give up and set your good example.

      Great work, Missy. I hear and feel your deep sentiments. We need to take Tim McGraw's advice and be "humble and kind." It is a worrying time for everyone, no matter where we live.
