Beat Goes On

Beat Goes On

                                                     Play Time ~ Philip Brent Harris


It is time to put people over politics, country over capitulation and world over wealth.


I’m beating the same themes
and, I will pound them again.
Since the peace I seek seems
a consensus exacting to gain,
it may stay forever unbidden,
until you dovetail my dreams,
remain a horse never ridden.

Let’s give up any nation, state
based on geographic localities.
In groups we create, why wait,
without a risk to our identities,
be citizens of our convictions.
Enmities abjure, wars abdicate,
peace in history, our depiction.

People with the most live best;
their desires, their only hymn.
They’ve no care for all the rest,
only how we may serve them.
Our hijacked youth sent to die;
realize the answer to this test,
walk away, don’t heed the lie.


Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment
