Still Not Satisfied

Inspired by I Have A Dream by Martin Luther King Jr.

Still Not Satisfied

A man once said he had a dream.
For this nation falters in stride,
every man resistant by pride.
A man held in so high esteem,
his end caused the earth to scream.
His beliefs inspire those denied,
judged by the color of their hide.
The waters still have not rolled free,
while the stream is far from mighty.
And still, he is not satisfied.

A Foolish Vow

Threading his way through the thick crowd,
he takes pains to draw not an eye.
For which of these could be their spy?
His escape must not be allowed,
as to their master they have vowed,
if not alive … then severed head?
Would a bloodied corpse do instead?
But their mission will bring but pain,
cause each life will drain from each vein.
With their fate no tears will be shed.

Gypsy Quest: a Décima Poem.

My entry for this weeks Décima Poetry Challenge No. 5 MATE. (A New Challenge here on ronovanwrites.com)

Gypsy Quest

She disappeared without a trace.
He does not know her by her name.
Still, his love burns hot as a flame.
The one clue is her scented lace,
delicate as a cloud’s embrace.
He determines he is to locate
the one he calls his gypsy mate.
His heart beat strongest facing west,
that direction begins his quest.
for his thirst no other will sate.

Kindness through Cable.

This week’s Kindness is an article I read on the GoodNewsNetwork.org site. They share articles that are exactly what their title says. This one shows a Greenville, South Carolina cable technician showing up just in the nick of time to help a mother of two under the age of 4, one being Sailor who is blind and has two rare brain disorders. Click the link above to check out the full article and the mom’s words.holding a disabled son of a customer while he was there to fix the internet. Next week I’ll share the article I was too tired to finish I wanted to share this week, but was saved by this miracle of an article.

Kindness is my Comfort Zone.

Kindness is a buzzword now. I think some people don’t even realize what it really means, or how to live by it. Sometimes we think we’re doing a kindness and it’s really just something we’re supposed to do in the first place. So what is kindness? Is it different for each person based on what they believe or how they grew up or their current life? In a way, I believe if we all did as we should, kindness wouldn’t even be a word. What do you think Kindness is? Share a Kindness post with  us today in the comments and maybe someone will click that link and benefit from your view or image or an experience you share. I’ll be doing this each Thursday as health permits mainly to remind myself that kindness exists in the world. Oh, and follow me on Instagram as this is my first image to ever share as I have had the account for several years now but never had anything to share. @ronovanwhester  Share the image if you would like.
