Endeavor To Persevere

Poem By George Wootton

I sadly say goodbye to Mollie
After she had painfully left our world,
There is no sense only melancholy
As hate at her was hurled.
An undocumented murdered her they screamed
He overpowered her with his brawn,
Evil must not ever be accepted and redeemed
Hate and sin must not ever carry-on.
A person should never be judged by their race
I like other vigorous writers am a polemicist,
Horror and venom can appear on anyone's face
Think! Is every white male a racist and a supremacist.
She was viciously murdered, sad but true
Those facts will always prevail,
But, it wasn't just an undocumented who did pursue
She was murdered, by a macho male.

Comments about Endeavor To Persevere

Very well-written, Randy. I had considered writing a poem when we learnt that America's sweetheart had been found murdered, but controversial issues must be worded carefully or you risk offending someone on either side. Someone very dear to me who is Hispanic, said of her predator and killer, 'He was just a bad apple.' And he was. And Mollie wasn't doing anything wrong- - just jogging. You handled the content well!

Guard it from thieves, so it won't be stolen or sold,
Protect it surely as you would protect your love
Keep it safe and protected and always there of.

When he left his mother and the doctor spanked his hide
In that delivery room he then first cried,
But, that cry that he uttered so proudly and loud
Was a proclamation to all, that he'll make his mother proud.


Victory is ours!
Said one crow to the other,
As they soared in the sky above.
For below them they had spied

Boxer's Chess

I am no man's rook
I go wherever that I look,
No one controls my every move
What I do, only I approve.

I Am My Father's Son

I Am My Father's Son
That is who I am,
Though I am, still his child
I am still a man.
