A PRAYER AND A DREAM

I want to break away from all the hatred
And away from all the violence.
I'll drive as many miles as it takes to find
A place with nothing but silents.


No television to tell me another soldier has died
Leaving my heart feeling as though it has dropped to my toes.
Speculating weather we should be fighting or not
Then thinking to myself, "nobody really knows."


I want to close my eyes and see the quiet calm
of the water so smooth and serene.
And see in my head a picture of our soldiers coming home
For this is in my prayers,and my dreams.

When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.

John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) Thirty-fifth President of the USA
