God Bless Not Only America

Poem By Gordon Tseng

(To enjoy the song for this poem, please see the poet's profile for the website.)

God bless the hungry, in Columbia or in Cambodia, in Europe or in Ethiopia.
God bless all farmers, growing potatoes or tomatoes, bananas or papayas.
God bless all bears, pandas in China, polar bears in Canada, or cola bears in Australia.
God bless the codes and the buttons of nuclear weapons, in Arizona or in Siberia.

God bless all children, drinking dirty water or Coca-Cola.
God bless the dreams, both in Bollywood's or Hollywood's cinema.
God bless all Gods or their wise friends, Laozi or Confucius, Muhammad or Buddha.
Oh, my God, oh, our God, could you please bless all of us, not only America?


Comments about God Bless Not Only America

This is a good piece, and worthy of praise. I would like to see this fleshed out more as I think it has the potential to be the foundation of a ballad. Nicely done, or begun as you decide.
u have really hit the core................but frankly they may have been blessed with material richness but they r paupers in the humane ground and r literally orphans emotionally...........so we must really pity them.............
Gordon u made laugh here my man, , ha ha ha! ! ! i love it, , , yes God must bless us all not only america, , , ,

A Love Song By The Star

Singing a love song, wandering in that peaceful and lonely night,
The blinking star lets his touching notes take a ride with the moonlight.
To thank the moon for her fan-like listening, her generous free flight,
The notes dance on the black sleepy ocean, make it excited and silver white.

Nuclear-Powered Fear

</></>They say, to enjoy the modern life, you need nuclear.
Oh, it’s safe and clean so don’t worry, my dear.
But, when encountering the things that happen every hundred years,
They would say, well, there is still something not so sure and clear.

Poetry And Music

Toward the heaven, I throw my verse
And there comes the twinkling universe.
Into the world, I release my music notes
To let solitude enjoy rowing the life boats.

Fly With Me

(To enjoy the song for this poem, please see the poet's profile for the website.)

Fly with me.


They always travel from particularities to generalities,
In their adventures of discovering, or creating, explicable realities.
With pure logic, reasoning, or other mental abilities,
Bravely exerting all the human intellect’s possibilities.
