Where Are We Headed?


So many unknowns lying
ahead so many choices
to be made based on so
many decisions or mistakes of
the past.
Where is Puerto Rico going?
How will it recover from this
monetary disaster as many
more are leaving faster and
faster will this jewel of The
Caribbean lose its shine can
it continue to exist as
a commonwealth design?
Where is Ecuador going?
How will it recover from this
natural disaster as many are
dying faster and faster will
this beautiful well governed
South American nation be
beautiful again for each
future generation?
Where is The Middle East going?
How will it recover from such
war torn disaster as many more
are fleeing countries faster and faster
only to be disenfranchised as they
are turned away at each border
joining up and letting ISIS
become the new order?
Where is America going?
How will it recover from
this political disaster as
more hatred keeps spreading
faster and faster is there
any real choice who does
NOT possess the voice  of “You are
the slave, I am the master”?

  1. As long as people with hope exist and willing to stand up for their country and help others, they will achieve a better future for themselves. I enjoy this piece very much.

    • Gracias Alejandra! That’s it, we have to keep standing up and not letting ourselves be “told” what is all there is. We need to envision, to believe, and have hope. I saw an awesome PBS special on Ecuador the other night, and they have a current Prez who pretty much does that. So on their end, as tragic as the earthquake was (and the fact that most of the beauty that was shown in the docu was probably damaged) I am sure they will recover well. I liked the way he manages the oil drilling and how he doesn’t just slash and burn The Amazon, compared to say Venezuela and their ruthless Prez and Chavez before him.

      • True that, leaders like that inspire their people. They are there to serve and not to be served.
