Are you listening?
I am an American soldier and sometimes it feels like I am in an Army of me, an Army of one. Are you the unknown soldier? The one that’s been silent all these years? While you were draggin’ the line our enemies were drawing the line with their dirty deeds done dirt cheap in the back room . Like promises in the dark all that we see are smoke and mirrors round here. This betrayal was made in America. We’ve been pushed aside and pulled apart in the Grand Illusion as you sit waiting, and wishing writing your Dear Mr. President letter with trembling hands waiting for the end .
Do you stand with a tear in your hand and say “people are strange”, “people are crazy”, while thinking everything about you is better than this? If you believe in a spaceman or the spirit in the sky, get ready to meet your master or meet your maker. They don’t care about us. If you don’t raise your voice, if you don’t stand up with your hands held high you are a puppet on a string. There is no bravery in the sounds of silence. You can keep waiting for the miracle, but I can’t wait. That master of puppets Big Brother says, “don’t worry we’ll be watching you.”
For crying out loud, stop thinking there is nothing you can do about it! There is precious time and I alone am not strong enough. I have been down so long just like you. We cannot say let’s wait a while. There is always a new wreck of the day. I care to tell it like it is . Don’t you? Let’s work together.
Imagine you & me reclaiming America! Have a little faith in me. I believe in you. We can work it out. Get ready, think, stand. Have no fear, fight for your right to raise your voice. Can’t you see? Turn around there are millions like us. Anything is possible when we stand together. We could be amazing.
See Part One HERE
