The Twisted Lies of the Perfect Little White Fence

Donna is a poet who takes stands up for those who fear-It's not easy, but I believe my God will sound through the lies of politician's agend

The Twisted Lies of the Perfect Little White Fence

Believe in yourself and go the right way!

Believe in yourself and go the right way!

Your Way NO! Our Way of Life!

We all go about our ways in life. Living each moment from one day to the next
And I often wonder if we ever achieve a life without any regrets
So many passed us by, never to get noticed for our own self worth
Always getting passed up without anyone ever saying a word

It's gathered by many; we have so much to say yet, we are told that it's always better to tweet
We go about our days; walking side by side; living blindly not looking from our technology

That there is something greater out there; if we but give a damn of the future of the world and what time really means
Test of time will tell the tale; that the future lies ahead being drowned by political greed

We strive to survive, it's all that we strive to do but isn't survival among the fittest?
To pass one another up with our own agenda; portraying the way life really is?
Not giving anyone the right to really know who you are, when it takes a moment of your time

You say, when is the truth; just the truth or a lie is just a perpetual lie?

We walk our own way like many get held up in a line, only to take a number
You might be next; you might wait a long time... in the end; are you apt to surrender

What does life really consist of; do you even know what we're expected to give
When we're taught to fend for ourselves; are you always striving to win?
We've all been told to be all that we can be, but you better not touch that, or you will die!
Doesn't it leave you speechless, asking questions only to be told yet another lie?

We march the perfect march; don't waiver from their ways - Just do as your told!
To seek out your own destinations; that leads us to get caught up in political self-righteous molds
Pretty little political ambitions that are supposed to lead us to what's right
How can we seek out our own justice when politicians are the cause of all the crime?

March to the beat of a different drum, hey, that only leads us to nowhere
We stand in that straight and narrow life; in the end, no one really cares
We strive for that perfect little white fence; that stands in front of our houses
Only for it to tumble down as the politicians laugh at the way the dow bounces!

I differ to the injustice, the "American dream" is a farce; not what we expect life to be

When will we take our stand; realize that life is just life; it's up to you and to me and the politicians make three?

I agree, Flourish!

Hopefully we can learn to care a little more about one another

Thank you all so much, I appreciate you reading my poem! Have a lovely day and don't stand in line... if you're called to stand alone have the courage to do so, God is in control!

Very enlightening, Well written

Thank you for sharing

Very few have ' the perfect little white fence ' When we pass by a person in need and not help we may be committing a sin against an angel. Love is the key. We are a nation of laws, therefore we must have politicians. I vote for the person whom I think will do the best job for the American people. I am not always correct, but at least I tried. Best wishes to you my friend.

Clive is saying the right things. You are a beautiful soul as everyone else. So He puts us all on the anvil and yes, I know you have had your fair share. yet He does this because he loves us dearly ... beyond speech and time.

You are not doing badly in my view. Do not worry about the stumbles. It takes a very beautiful Heart to be where you are. Much Light and Beauty to you, from Above. Praise be!

Clive Williams from Jamaica on March 17, 2020:

Peace and Love. God Bless

I appreciate your wise words and appreciate them. Don't go away, I value your opinions. You were not troubling me and I needed your words to guide me to the things I miss in serving God and I thank you for that.

Good evening, my Dear.

I was trying to compliment you. Discrimination, from the mystical point of view, means wisdom. It seems it's the drift I got wrong, not the word. Since you say you can see what life is offering and you have found God, then trust me, it becomes very easy to use it to your advantage. That is discernment, which will eventually lead to inner wisdom, the crest jewel of discrimination.

Change your angle of vision. Let Christ in, so that He can be the first and the last. You will be surprised at your continued progress. Are you looking at the flaws or for the flaws of His Creation? Let Christ do this and remember the Master's admonitions about finding faults.

Again, I'm only a servant who tries to serve. Once I feel the individual sees it another way, I step away, so I won't trouble you again. You are God's, not mines and I came into this world to Love and serve. Much Peace.

P.S. By the way, the only gift we need is the gift of Love. Everything else will follow.

Exactly, Pamela, I believe if we believe everything that we are told and strive for what people want us to do, we give up our own freedom, including our freedom to write about, share about our God.

Manatita, I wasn't discriminating against anyone except how our rights are trampled on by the politician's greed and how the tables got turned from them working for us to we the people working for them all the while they laugh.

I've found God in 2012 and he has blessed me with the gift of writing and I thank him very much for it.

I guess everyone wants the white picket fence but that obviously isn't realistic. Our life is what we make of it and I think that is what you said, Donna. This is a very good point.

manatita44 from london on March 16, 2020:

Your piece flows like what we call discrimination. You can also say wisdom. If you arrive at the point where you realise that all you truly need is God, then that's beautiful! Getting God then we get everything else. Much Love, my friend.

Kyler, thank you very much! I'm happy you liked it!

A very wonderful poem. It presents both why I abstain from politics and organized religion, and hold them both at equal levels of disdain while also accepting their existence and necessity. May we all move toward a brighter, mutual future.
