The feelings of Red, White and Blue echo through every North American
Red as the blood of the fertile soil of the Motherland
White as a Canadian winter for the person that shovels it
Blue as the American patriot that seeks to live is life as citizen and soldier
The North and South hearts that beat as one
Republican and Democrat, cries that have been forgotten over the years
We are a people that yearn to live among one another
A people not divided by borders, but by cultures and race
It took 9/11 to make our heart beats once again, to remember
We are not invincible nor should we think we are
We are fragile as any human beings yet our pride beats strongly
The drums of Native Americans and the guns and pride of which we stand by
I write not as a Candian nor as an American, but I write as one
People have long since forgotten the Senate does not control the people
People have long since forgotten they have a choice in their government
Laws can change just as much as people can change
Lawyers that seek to destroy rather then protect
Defendants that are guilty rather then accused
Rape victims silenced rather then accounted for
Rapists set free rather then jailed
Innocent men and women sent to jail for crimes they did not commit
The jailers protect the people in accordance with the government
Don't Ask, Don't tell
This poem is not just a poem, but a way of life for many...
I write this because I myself have been denied an existence
No one sees the hidden tears, the denial or the betrayal...
No one sees my mother abused and tossed to the side like some cheap whore
No one sees my father living with my mother as it once was...
No one sees what my father did was wrong, yet they praise him instead...
No one sees the fact I was given a coke and rum at age 6
I remember it all, because my cousins remind me of what has not been done
They continue to torture my mind and my soul behind my back
They continue to spit on my mother's good name after what has been done
I ask you, the people of deviantART to let this go unnoticed...
For there is non-existence within existence...
