Hesitate

We hear: “Wait to see what happens.”

And I say we could be dead by then.

Take up arms against

injustice and oppression

and could/would we be thrown in jail?

Fight for our rights

in court instead of in a gunfight

and would we be outlaws if we chose

the gun over The Court?

21st Century musings

or future premonitions?  You decide.

One Response to Hesitate

  1. Hello..Thank you for stopping in. ‘Hesitation loses the moment’. Your post here poses very valid questions. ‘I feel remiss if I do not mention ‘they only need be answered once. confusion cannot have any time’, esp. in subjects so grave. ‘Destruction is exactly that’. ‘Conflict leads to discovery. Discovery should never lead to conflict’. ‘There is no intelligent way to justify war.’ These are some quotes of mine..one thing they are saying is ‘destruction is as subject to Newton’s Law of object at motion and at object at rest as everything in the known universe.’ Here is another..’all action is infinite’..Have a wonderful New Year..Peace Tony
