Collapse of a Nation

Collapse of a Nation
as this title arrives
so does the question
what is a nation?
when we look it up
it has such a range of uses
whether a peoples, a community
a country, a civilization, a tribe
their structures become unstable
when something is out of integrity
and a collapse of the old
is the opportunity
to build the new
perhaps as one nation
on station Earth

Paraguay

Paraguay
this country wants to have a say
land-locked
surrounded by others
a past history of wars
with a motto of peace and justice
Paraguay is a developing country
considered poor
life expectancies are more
than in many others
and on the happiness scale
they prevail
as the happiest peoples
worth asking why
their aboriginal cultures
values and languages prevail
diversity and continuity
living mostly rurally
this is their stability
they are not poor at their core
may we learn from them
living more
for thru this door
is happiness

Protected Forever

Protected Forever
the lives of the millions
come father, come son
are protected forever
by the power of one
no insurgence
no divergence
from the truth that is here
can conquer a oneness
that has the absence of fear
