Courageous are we

who say what we see

speaking straight from the heart

what we truly believe

defending the just

protecting the weak

putting others before us

instead of just - Me

Compassion and courage

will unshackle our chains

honor and truth

will course through our veins

giving meaning and purpose

to a world filled with pain

unveiling our essence

that of a true - Human Being

Why write?
I write because I am:
Driven to distraction by the inequities of the society in which we live.
Motivated by cruelty, abuse, ignorance and indifference.
My intention: To poke, prod and provoke!
"Moderation is a fatal thing. Nothing succeeds like excess." - Oscar Wilde
