  • I feel a veil of sadness engulf me and it is a sadness for all humankind.

    A sadness for the greed of Wall Street wanting more and more and giving less and less. A sadness because children die of hunger while we fill our garbage with leftovers. A sadness for the leaders on whom we placed our hope but who chose the dark side

    A sadness for those who claim to love God but instead judge others as if they were God themselves.
    A sadness for the lack of understanding between one being and another.
    For hypocrisy.
    For churches that preach love and dispense man made rules.
    For misunderstandings,
    For hate and prejudice,
    For injustice
    For all parents who've lost a child
    And all spouses who lost a mate

    A sadness fo self-centered people who can't get out of that center
    For giving people who give too much and the takers who can't stop taking
    For the so-called righteous who judge the so-called sinners
    And the so-called sinners who are hated, and abused and mistreated
    For fathers who walk out on their kids
    For kids who want to learn but have no schools

    For the blind that want to read
    The deaf that want to hear a symphony
    For the dumb that want to utter a word of love

    And for all who are blind deaf and dumb but have perfect eyesight hearing and voices.


    Siento que me cubre un velo de tristeza y es una tristeza por toda la humanidad.
    Tristeza por la avaricia de Wall Street que quiere mas y otorga menos.
    Tristeza porque hay niños que se mueren de hambre mientras otros llenan la basura de sobras.
    Por nuestros líderes sobre quienes depositamos nuestra esperanza pero que eligieron el lado oscuro
    Por los que dicen amar a Dios pero en vez juzgan a los otros como si ellos fueran Dios.
    Tristeza por la falta de comprensión entre nosotros
    Por la hipocresía
    Por las iglesias que predican el amor pero reparten reglas establecidas por el hombre
    Por malentendidos
    Por el odio y el prejuicio
    Por la injusticia
    Tristeza por todos los que han perdido un hijo
    O su pareja
    Por los egoistas
    Por los generosos y los que se aprovechan de su generosidad
    Por los supuestos justos que juzgan a los supuestos pecadores
    Y el abuso maltrato y odio a lo supuestos pecadores
    Por los padres que abandonan a sus hijos
    Y las madres que se lo bancan
    Por los niños que quieren aprender pero que no tienen escuelas

    Por los ciegos que desean leer
    Los sordos que desean escuchar una sinfonía
    Y los mudos que desean expresar el amor


    Y por todos los ciegos sordos y mudos
    con perfecta visión, oído y voz
