As a child, freedom
was tempered with love
As a teen-ager,
I marched for freedom,
As a woman
I respected the rights of others,
As a mother
freedom was a threat,
As an older citizen,
I fear the government
that goes to war,
sends troops abroad
and wonder what for?
Young men in their prime
fathers and sons
on foriegn soil
armed with guns.

Is a million miles away.
