It is better to be an outcast, a stranger in one’s own country, than an outcast from one’s self. It is better to see what is about to befall us and to resist than to retreat into the fantasies embraced by a nation of the blind.

RISE UP - by Doug Graves (December 2007)

Rise up to Higher Ground
where better things abound,
and eagles soar above the roar
and chaos strewn below.
Just catch the breeze and lift your wings,
be all that you may dare,
and leave behind the battlfield
where once you marched so bold.
Take flight, rise up to Higher Ground
and watch your dreams unfold.
