Someday a poem by Rhonda

Someday, sometime, someone will see
What it takes for all to be free.
Walking together hand in hand,
Telling of freedom from land to land.
As the sun comes up
That finest of days
I’ll think not of the past
Far off in a haze.
I’ll dream of a good life
Where friendship abounds.
Where loving my brother
Forever resounds!

a rhonda original© 1969 an idealistic teenager’s hopeful words. . .

Tommy James & the Shondells Happy memories from when I was just 14 years old. Does anyone know what this song was inspired by?

My own photograph shot with a Kodak EZS ZM995 taken from the beach at Church’s Trestles, Camp Pendleton, California, USA – Summer 2012. There was a piece of dried kelp so I stuck it into the sand and shot some photos. I kind of liked this one.
