For Every Soul

Starry eyed and laughing

As I recall when we were caught

Lost in no track of the hours

For they hang suspended

 

As we listened one last time

And gazed with one last look

Spell bound and swallowed

Until the tolling had ended

 

Tolling for the aching ones

Whose pains cannot be nursed

For the countless confused misused

Strung out ones and worse

 

And for every hung up person

In the whole wide universe

And we gazed upon

The chimes of  freedom flashing

 

(Taken from Chimes of Freedom Flashing

Words and music by Bob Dylan)

 

For every visionary

Whose crystalized vision

That will not

See the light of day

 

For every revolutionary

Who is willing to die

For their dream

Of social change and liberation

 

For every

Falsely accused criminal

Who had to dodge the elements

To prove their innocence

 

For every

Song writer

Whose songs

Will never be heard

 

For every writer

And poet

Whose words

Will never be read

 

For all the unsung heroes

Whose work

And courageous actions

Go forever obscured

 

For the outcast

Who has long since

Fallen from

Social graces

 

Those fallen angels

Who like Lucifer

Have fallen

From the gates of Eden

 

For the wanderer

The drifter

Wandering aimlessly

In the night

 

For all those soldiers

Who died

In the line

Of hostile fire

 

For all those soldiers

Who died

In the line

Of friendly fire

 

For all the graveyards

And tombstones

That bear their names

 

For all their wives

And family

For all their tears

Anguish and rage

 

For all the epitaphs

That read

For God and Country

Your efforts weren’t in vain

 

For all those soldiers who died

Defending their country

In the name of God

And the profits made in his name

 

For all of the soldiers

Who bravely

Laid down their arms

Never to fight again

 

For all of the politicians

Patriots War mongers

And God fearing evangelists

Who never picked up

 

And fired a weapon

Those who

Hide behind walls desks

God the Bible

 

And the shield of democracy

While the young

Fight and die

In the battlefields

 

For every

Drop of blood

For every

Drop of oil

 

For every ounce

Of gold

That will never

 

Bring back

The dead

Or buy back

Your soul

 

For every soul

You’ve destroyed

That will

Haunt you

 

On your

Day of

Reckoning after

Your demise

 

For every

Child that

Has been

Left behind

 

An orphan

Fatherless or

Motherless  The

Price of war

 

When insanity raises its hand

And fires the trigger

It’s the wrong target

That gets hurt

 

For every peace monger

Marching through

The streets proudly

In a call to arms

 

Waging peace for all

So that

No child

Gets left behind

 

For every

Mothers son

For every

Fathers daughter

 

For every

Sister and brother

For everyone

Under the sun

 

For every

Child unchained

Free fleeting

And wayward

 

For every

Transitory migrating soul

An immigrant

Void of borders

 

For every immigrant

For every Mexican

For every El Salvadorian

And for

 

Every immigrant

From every country

Who dare cross the border

By any means

 

IN THE END

PASSPORTS BORDERS

AND PAPERS

WILL BE FOREVER IRRELEVANT!!!

 

BREAK DOWN

THE BORDERS

WALLS AND BARRIERS NOW!!!

 

LOvE  TO ALL
