Painted Knees

Painted Knees

too many live their lives

denied knowing the green grass

stains the dreams of youth

Above So High

celestial forms

white or red they light the way

to dreams while lives wane

Atonement For A Nation

I look upon the face of our nation

The creases of strife and hatred etched as stone

I look in to the eyes of damnation

The years of a democracy perhaps overthrown

I look for the spirit of liberation

The pain of the hopeless is ours to atone
