Wishes and Wants



Is it really considered sticking your head in the sand

If you refuse to give terrorists the notoriety they demand?

Is war really the only option to consider

When war never really produces a winner?


Is it so wrong to protect our own nation’s borders

Instead of continuing the pattern of oil and land hoarders?

Can we still be world leaders without succumbing to fear?

And why do we need to bring the refugees here?

At what point do we say, “Enough is enough?”

It’s time for someone else in the world to be brave and get tough!

Can’t we lead by example and support peace and healing

By pulling together any governments willing

To concentrate on addressing the hurt and

Saving our land, our lives, and this earth?

I realize I’ve created more questions than answers.

Why not spend our money finding a cure for cancer? 

This holiday season, please consider giving a gift in someone’s honor to the American Cancer Society.
