Depth of our Life



I am a cloud with a mind

seeing everything from years



I collected all the knowledge

captured and remembered

passing it down.


I cannot blame those who

fought for freedom and

died in vain.


Freedom does not exist in the

heart of man, it lives

in the soul of love.


I filled my cup with gratitude

years ago, when mist-covered

flowers of unselfish souls were

never taken for granted!


I watch the sunset and remember

those days of youth when life

was a treasure, not something

to fear.


I won't forget the sweat and tears

of those who worked the land and lived

life to the fullest, with God beside

there every dream.


I see a land of darkness now with no

desire to keep our nation free from

crimes and greed.


I see the clouds darken the world with

regret and unseen death of hope that

made our world so free.


What happened to the depth of life

when it used to be so filled with love

and understanding?


(Open the door and look up and see light)
