No wonder the west and westerners are hated in so many places around the world. We invade, placate, tempt and corrupt with commercialism and the dollar. Abuse and kill in the name of peacekeepers and eventually run away, tail between legs from places we should never have tried to make \'do it our way\'. Leaving behind what. Look at Afghanistan, Viet nam, and Laos (spin off of Viet nam) where USA dropped more tonnage of bombs than they dropped in WW2 and to this day thousands of innocent PEOPLE are being killed or maimed by unexploded cluster bombs. Who wins in the end.... why the mighty dollar of the armaments trade of course, war is a huge earner for capitalism... and a scar on the heart of humanity in the west.

The people of Afghanistan have been badly let down by the West. The situation always was a complex one, and there are no easy answers - especially now. However, Western governments (especially the U.S. and the British) have handled the situation badly, and they should hang their heads in shame!

Unfortunately, we all must stand up for ourselves less others try to tear
us down. Nice write!

I\'ve said it before and gladly say it every day, this one I feel the need to put straight in my veins.

That\'s its okay to rely on another soul and not just my own words that sit deep down in the hole!

Keep up the shine my friend!

dear L.B you just soothed all my pains, with your very talented mind.

in-to, murky forests

of opportunity and chance.

Once more I dive

deep, inside trepidation’s caves

of dissipating hope

i just love the thought of this.

That awareness is within us all if we just think about what glory there may be once the bad has passed or been forgiven.

A beautiful poem. I learned Plath`s Poem: Mirror. A quote from it. \"I am silver and exact. I have no preconceptions.
Whatever I see I swallow immediately
Just as it is, unmisted by love or dislike.
I am not cruel, only truthful ‚
The eye of a little god, four-cornered\"

An emotive and imaginative poem, L.B. - Sylvia Plath deserves a mention, and a quote. \"I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead; I lift my eyes and all is born again.\" I visited her grave (about 15 miles from my home) a few years ago, in Heptonstall, West Yorkshire, England. She had great talent.
