“What’s Going On” A Poetic Tribute To Marvin Gaye

What’s Going On?

What’s going on the question dear Marvin asked over forty decades ago

I sit here and ponder and can honestly can say do we really know

Mother’s are still crying so many tears of pain

Will they find a place of peace some sunshine after the rain

Our brothers they are dying  on foreign soils and lands called home

Some considered endangered species in the places that they roam

Fathers we call on you to not let wars rise up and elevate

In your hands are the keys to both peace and love to war and hate

People are protest marching  and carrying thought-provoking signs of the times

Seeking to make a difference and eagerly towing the lines.

So Marvin is asking and wondering  about what is going on in our world today

I believe he said it best when he offered that classic line

You know we’ve got to find a way

To bring some lovin’ here today

If  love is truly the answer  to all our ills and woes

Infusing it into the fabric of our lives is really how it  goes

Now that is what is going on…

Rest so peacefully Marvin Pentz Gay, Jr.  (Marvin Gaye)

“There are still times I feel unhappy and I must smile, and there are times I want to cry and I must laugh… people rarely see the real Marvin Gaye”
