Sunday 160-Peace 4 U, Please!



As a lovely soul,
U join the army for an upright goal.
Did u hear your mother cry
When u suddenly die?
Of course,
None has prepared for this,
Peace 4 u,
Please!

Thought sure I commented here: Yes, Happy Memorial Day! And memories are what it is about...those who died for thie belief and their country and their Peeps. Also those who served and were willing to offer the Supreme Sacrifice--their lives.

Thank you for writing what I needed to read, and climb out of myself this evening, Jingle

When one grows up from innocent child
At 17 Uncle Sam had me to go in the wild
It was the time of no reflection with Viet Nam war
This was the opening of my first Conscious door
But my belief made me unscathed as it was my Soul
To make me come back in one piece so very whole

In remembrance for all those who have sacrificed for us to make us seek the Soul within while still here in the physical I salute you all...for it is in gratitude that brought us all here that sees this...enjoy Jingle and Happy Monday to you as well(+)
soulbro*:)
ps luckily as I believe in myself which was a quote from my English teacher when I was a senior in 1972 that this became possible and has been with me ever since as this is the LOA with my Soul as I did not have to go even the path was pointing there...
