NOT MY SECRET...My story...My truth

https://instagram.com/p/BkthkDRhsuD/

I have only cried once

In the middle of the night

A true guttural wailing kind

For all of the heinous crimes

Trapped inside

Only once have I cried THAT cry.

I’ve only screamed once

Releasing what silence had embodied

Imprisoned

Every vision

Feeling the rage with in

I’ve only screamed THAT fury scream

In front of Him

Not having to hide

The agony

Just that one time

I’ve only stood in the rain

Once

To make me feel human again

Clean of man

I plan

To do that again

But to next time

Dance

Good People Doing Good Things — A Bunch!

Filosofa's Word

Every Wednesday morning I go in search of good people, people who are helping others or working to preserve wildlife, the environment, or something humanitarian.  I never have trouble finding those good people, and this week was no exception … in fact, I already had a few tucked away from last week!  Sometimes the good people I find are doing huge things, helping hundreds or even thousands.  But at the end of the day, it’s the little things, I think, that mean the most.  And so today I present you with some people who are giving of themselves in small ways, yet with huge hearts!


Herman-Gordon-2 Herman Gordon is a much-loved custodian at the University of Bristol (that would be England, not Tennessee) .  The students say he is always happy and upbeat … Herman-Gordon Herman and his wife are originally from Jamaica and have not been able to afford a trip…

Hear The Children’s Cries As They Are Separated From Parents Seeking Asylum At US SW Border

Standard

Gronda Morin

Thanks to the media outlet Propublica, we have access to the above video. Please be aware that the sound of the children’s wailing as they are being separated from their parents seeking asylum at the US southwest border, are heartbreaking.

This is a new protocol that was started with President Donald Trump’s Attorney General Jeff Sessions with his April 6, 2018 memo. As per Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), the president can end this practice of separating children from the parents with one phone call. Telling the migrants to apply for asylum at the US designated points of entry is not a realistic direction as most peoples are being turned away. There are stories about peoples waiting weeks to gain entry.

As per international law, it is NOT illegal for peoples fleeing danger, persecution, war like circumstances, to ask for asylum.

Any other republican talking point other than the above…

Tin Soldier

Tin Soldier

Petulant child, in a bit of a snit,
pooches his lips out. He’s having a fit.
He sets up tin soldiers in orderly rows.
Where they will be fighting, not even he knows.

Fast through the air, his tweets swiftly whistle,
delivering threats like an ICBM missile.
He casts insults northwards and south over borders
to Mexico, Canada and other quarters.

He’s saving his friendships for other bad boys.
With each fawning message his keyboard deploys,
he wishes their power were his for the taking.
Korea and Russia—what plots in the making.

His attention span just long enough for his tweeting,
he blusters his way through each conference and meeting.
Many are gap-jawed, yet nothing gets done
concerning disarming this smoking gun.

He’s expressing his own sort of odd concentration
by impounding children, expressing elation
that this will now curb illegal immigration.
How long will we let this…
