WHEN WRONG BECOMES RIGHT...

SHAME ON YOU... by b. Malin

You can riot at a Soldiers funeral.

WHY?

Dear God please tell me why?

Because YOU can comes the reply.

FREEDOM OF SPEECH...FREEDOM OF SPEECH.

The answer comes from the ground, not the sky.

So what if the pain they cause is more than a family can bare.

These Soliders, these dead Soliders, were once so alive.

Seeing a glorious sunset, watching the birds on high.

Somebody's Son, Brother, Sister, Mother, or Dad.

Or maybe just somebody's Friend...

Dying to keep all of us safe.

With their Hopes and Dreams set aside.

For a tomorrow they would never see again.

While you protest your hatred at their graves.

Dear God please tell me why.

You are their maker.

Is there any Decency left in them?

Are they Human?

Do they see their own Reflections in the Mirror?

Or does it look back at them in disgust?

I hope one day when these PROTESTORS DIE...

You will personally take them aside, and ask why?

And I hope they cry, and beg for your forgiveness.

      There's always a right time and a right place to make one's voice known and we should all be able to realise that and not be so insensitive to others' needs.

      Thanks for sharing this message.

      ...well when you walk to talk about human nature and why people do what they do - there will always be more questions than answers ......as your poignant but confrontational piece of poetic provocation suggests - tough read but rewarding when it comes from a great writer like you!!!!

      Justice has heard you little one

      as everyone else in this place

      be assured all such things have their end

      and not too pleasant for the guilty

      Your pain and that of the grieving

      they will answer for

      this too must happen before the end.

      This just shows how people abuse the rights of others in the name of touting their own rights. It's very sad when they have to resort to this kind of thing.

      So true TimeTraveler, and that's why I wrote this Hub...I can't think of anything Lower for another Human being to do, can you? Thanks for your Comments.

      Me, neither. The world we live in would be a much better place if people spent more time respecting and honoring one another instead of screaming about their "rights".
