Let's Trade!

Poem By Eric Cockrell

let's trade bullets for nails,
and bombs for boards,
and build houses for those without shelter!
let's trade anger for listening,
and aggression for compassion,
and realize no one owns this earth!
let's trade religion for humanity,
and salvation for community,
and walk the path of redemption!
let's trade success for inner peace,
the need to have for the need to give,
and so fulfill our destinies!

for every tree you cut down,
a child is dying.
for every barrel of oil that
you drill and spill,

Ashes

it took ashes...
for me to draw
a picture of your living
in black and white...

That's Enough For Me!

from a tiny acorn,
the oak tree grows.
what a man cant find,
a child will know.

A Badge

he wears her like
the badge of honorable
abuse....

I Quit

i quit trying to save the world...
and just offered my hand,
and walked beside it.
i quit trying to find the truth,

A Buddha's Eternal Moment

one lone rose
opened by the sun,
the faint memory of rain,
and the dark damp earth.
