State of Dismay

when a nation abandons its aged

it loses its history,

when that nation abandons its children

it loses its futures mystery. 

when a nation abandons its ancestors

it loses its life blood,

when a nation abandons its spirituality

it loses its soul food.

when a nation abandons its resources

it will import its decay,

when a nation abandons its culture

it has truly lost its way.

when those who govern lead a nation

into abandonment and a state of dismay,

then those who are unwilling to be party to this

must in some way become revolutionary.
