Ballad For John Lennon

You tried hard enough to change the world
You tried hard to send a message to the world with all your songs
You were an activist
The kind that the world needed
I don't think that the world was ready for you
But you worked hard
to send the message anyway
Because you believed deep in your heart that it would do
The world had been falling apart for sometime
You kept working hard to bring the world closer
You first attenpt had failed
So you kept on trying
And you did
You were persistent
And in your mind you thought that you would achieve it somehow
You knew that peace
Was what the world needed
You worked towards peace
You wanted so badly to make peace with the world and the people
People misunderstood you
26 years later all the messages that was written in all the songs
You had composed lives on forever

This is a truly awesome tribute poem to Lennon. You've included everything the man stood for, believed in and fought for. Not to mention his brilliant musical mind. One of the best tributes I've read.
Aldo, I had to work the next day, I was devastated! - - - And for the week... Everything that you said was right. If I have one surprise... it is that that guy is still alive! Bye the way, I am not going to apologize for my 'Yelling at you' before, because I like honesty! I was honest back at you. Here is some more 'straight up' for you - - - I don't know anyone from Brazil, maybe now I do? What I wrote was not against anyone's beliefs, it was more against the ' Valley Girl ' speech patterns that I see here in the United States! I don't know if you see this, where you are - - - but, it is the lack of education that I am speaking out against! I don't know your backround, Aldo. but you seem to be well educated, so, please accept me as someone that you can talk with.
And may he and his words live on forever, I agree... I miss him too... Great tribute to a great man... Lee
