Look Within Your Heart My Wayward Son

LOVE IT….AND SO WOULD MY ANCESTER, SIR THOMAS CASWELL—FIRST OF OUR CASWELL CLAN TO REACH THESE AMERICAN SHORES, IN 1639!

Dom DiFrancesco

Look within your heart my wayward son

To where your ancestry lies

At gun’s molten barrel the war won’t be won

No matter how hard you might try

Where did your fathers and mothers come from

No doubt from a long distant shore

Once arriving in America their journey’d begun

Facing more than their hopes bargained for

Fiery rhetoric from the ignorant right

Does nothing but insight hate filled fear

Isolating newcomers who fled terrors fight

Disillusioning their wish to be here

It’s amazing how little this nation’s progressed

Seeing prejudice and racism rear their heads

Taking one step forward then two we regress

Giving in to the hate mongers dread

Perhaps it is time we holster our guns

And temper our fork tongued speech

Instead doing what America should have done

Practicing exactly what we preach

~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~
