Tears Along The Border (God Save Juarez)

Filed under: Uncategorized — migueltio @ 9:49 pm

So many tears

along the border

so many deaths

so little order.

So many promises

of so many jobs

so many busses

filled with the mobs.

So little housing

or civil construction

so little law

so much corruption.

No realization

of what can be done

to improve the lifestyle

under the deadly sun.

So little value

for individual life

with law enforcement causing

only more grief and strife.

So many mysteries

of a husband or wife

murdered while survivors’

sadness cuts like a knife.

So many stories

so many just disappear

so little support

so many constantly in fear.

Can Juarez recover

can its people stay alive

something needs to change

for its’ spirit to survive.

So many real living people

not just bees in a senseless hive

they deserve a chance to breathe

and flourish

they deserve a chance to soar

and thrive.

~Miguel
