"Universal Harmony," a poem for humanity.....

Universal Harmony
       ©  2018  Sy’needa Penland

          Flow as one, with my
          Universal harmony.
          Give of your free will,
          For just one dance with me.

          Dance in my essence,
          To the natural rhythm
          That you were born to be—
          An instrument upon my Earth.
          A conduit for my Divine Universe.

          As my cosmic planets
          Align themselves
          With my beloved Earth,
          I shall energize your souls
          With the Spirit of Love,

          As she reciprocates her love
          To the Divine Universe above,
          To all beings below,
          We shall bestow
              Peace, Love, and Harmony.

"Aftermath," a poem on Humanity and our Lack of Compassion for Mother Earth!!

    The Aftermath
       ©  2018  Sy’needa Penland

            There is a strong division of human culture
          That our eyes can see— Such, division
          Has long existed, throughout antiquity.

            Barbarism has since arisen,
          Suppressed since
          The beginning of time—
          Buried deep within
          Mother Earth’s core
          By the Great Divine;

          Fragmented pieces of herself,
          Her Ethereal-self,
          Her Evil-self,
          Her Resurrected-self,
          Her Divine-self,
          Her One-half of a
          Divine Whole, self.

          Cosmic fragments
          Of galaxies unknown,
          Throughout the Universe,
          Crystalline fragments roam;

          Earth and other planets
          It’s new haven– Cravin
          To be united once again;
          Cultures, divided
          By the entity, we call skin,
          Barbarism serves as
          An evil reminder of
          Our ancestors' sins.

          Do we dare live out the aftermath,
Once again?!

I AM the Universe, one of my favorite poems....

I AM the Universe
©  2018  Sy’needa Penland

I AM many things,
And many things
Are of me,
I AM all things,
And all things
Are of me,
I AM the sacred core
Of the human soul,
Through my Divine Spirit
All life unfolds,
Through one’s life journey
My tales are told,
Rebirthed seeds
Upon my sacred Earth,
As I give rebirth
To Angelic life—
Broken are the curses
That harbors human strife,
As souls conjoin to become one,
Under the Divine light
Of the Sun,
My crescent Moon
Shall nourish the souls of thee,
As I take root
In thy holy ground—
My compound Earth;
As she rebirth
With the kindred Spirt
Of the Universe,
Love and unity
Shall be her blessing
To humanity.

Poetry... The only thing that makes since nowadays.....

Obedient Scribe for the Universe
©  2018  Sy’needa Penland

            No thoughts, rhyme,
          or reason, comes to mind,
          as I stare at a blank page of life.
          Releasing the essence of my
          emotions, from the cruelty
          of humanity’s strife.

          I’ve arrived at the end
          of this remarkable journey,
          as a seasoned- devout Sage.
          Many words I’ve stroked
          with my pen, penetrating
          the veil of humanity’s sins—
          Discovering the secret origin
          of where human life begins.

          Crossing dimensional
          boundaries, only to see
          the other side of reality—
          Truth beyond the hidden veil,
          is what the energy of
          the Great Spirit foretells.

          TimeSpace Delusions
          Implanted illusions within
          the human mind.  Eyes shut,
          opened wide, I’ve crossed over
          to the other side.  Reality- 
    Hypocrisy, it’s all the same to me.

"No More Wars," a poem on Reality.....

No More Wars
                ©  2018  Sy’needa Penland

            When are we going to open our eyes to see
          that violence is not the solution to solve
          the problems of humanity—
          Love is the cure for all sadness,
          all chaotic madness, and will bring about
          peace and gladness, within the human heart.

          No more wars,
          As our villages are torn apart.
          As our lives are ripped apart.
          As our hearts are cut open,
          to become auctioned body parts.

          No more wars,
          As the collective consciousness fight to
          open doors within the human hearts
          and minds, that are no longer blind
          by illusions of Truth
          When the reality of Truth, is that
          we were born of Source energy.

          Not energy derived from “artificial intelligence.”

          Soon, you will come to realize
          that the programmed hackers
          are the true attackers of consciousness.
          Yet they themselves believe the lies
          that they are the genius minds
          who remain blind to the hypocrisy
          of science, who profess itself to be 
          the foundation of all creations.

          As the Book of Revelations unfolds,
          Truth shall be told!!

          Yet WE, the collective consciousness are in fact
          the True God Force Energy,
          working in synchronicity
          as Galactic Orbital Dynamics, aka GOD,
           which keeps the world spinning.

          Yet the energy of the sinning flesh,
          seeks to attract and devour
          the flesh of another, which seeks to
          stake claim to the rightful inheritance
          of thy brother.

          So goes the story of Cain and Able.

          Yet the mythical beliefs— manmade fallacies,
          directs energy towards the notion that
          “my skin” is better than “your skin,”
          but in reality “my skin” is the skin 
          that commits the worse sins,
          Cardinal Sins, I must add.

          It’s a sad-day in modern-day reality
          that WE STILL CAN’T GET ALONG—
          Shall be the song that is praised to the
          Most High Angels, as they seek a better way
to save humanity… From ourselves.

"Come Judgement Day..." a poem on the preservation of humanity...

Come Judgement Day
©  2018  Sy’needa Penland

One day soon,
We must all meet our Divine Creator,
To raise our hands to thee;
To swear to the energy
That manifested the fate
That led to the self-destruction
Of humanity—
The overwhelming energy of hate;

Upon our reincarnation,
We must take a vow to surrender
To the ultimate defender,
The Energy of Love,
That Earth’s Universe creates;

Within our hearts and souls
As Divine Life unfolds
To calibrate our thoughts from within,
Before committing a cardinal sin,
We must pledge an oath to the
Essence of our origin;

As the Great Divine entwines
Her essence with our  
Spirits, bodies, and minds,
We shall preserve the fate of
All life forms that she creates,
And manifest the Energy of Love,
To conquer the origin of hate.

Local Veteran Gets NO HELP from State Senator, John Isakson....

Ok, I'm about to rant for a minute ….  Which is completely out of the norm for me, this time of year…    I’m boiling mad right now!!!!!!  So, here goes…  

I just got off the phone with a staff employee of Senator Isakson's office and for the first time, in a long time, I had to raise my voice, which causes more harm than good nowadays!!

Obviously, she knew that she’d failed at doing her job several years ago when I’d contacted the Senator for assistance, and took the content of an email I’d sent to a co-worker yesterday, too personal. 

During our brief conversation, not only did she show absolutely ZERO concern for the nature of my request, but she made the conversation all about her, instead of about Veterans and how the Senator can be of better service to the Veteran community as a whole, not just in the state of Georgia, but throughout all branches of our Armed Services!!

This employee neglected to follow-up on an inquiry several years ago and as a result, I've had to endure additional pain and suffering from an extremely rare and chronic medical condition, which has gotten worse over the years. 

I was simply contacting Senator Isakson, as the Chairman, Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs, to see if he was interested in sponsoring a bill to get the condition added to the CFR.

Currently, the condition is not recognized in the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 38-Part 4 – Schedule for Rating Disabilities. 

Early last month, I received the final decision from the Board of Veterans’ Appeals (Board) finally acknowledging that my condition was in fact “service connected,” as a result of the injuries I endured as a military whistleblower.  And the documents I provided, as well as my medical history, to substantiate my argument, coincide with the chronological events of my whistleblower experience, which was also argued in my Civil Action lawsuit against the former Secretary of the Navy, Raymond Mabus.

For those of you that have been following my Whistleblower case since mid-2007, while serving on active duty in the Navy, I suffered blatant retaliation as a military whistleblower and was punished severely.    My former bosses took cruel and unusual punishment to a new level!!   I digress….

As a result of my injuries, I developed a chronic blood condition, soon after my release from Mira Mar brig. The condition was brought on by extreme stress.   In January 2009, while serving on active duty, medical doctors at Balboa Medical Center diagnosed the condition and monitored my blood, and later began treating the condition until I was discharged from the Navy on July 31, 2009.

On August 3, 2009, my medical case was transferred to the Department of Veterans Affairs for further evaluation (study) and treatment. 

For almost 10 years, I’ve had to endure monthly tests, as well as daily treatment for this rare condition, that senior Navy officials, not only caused with deliberate intent but turned a blind eye to, as if to say I was delusional or deserving of such Human Rights abuse. Meanwhile, monthly lab tests and ongoing prescription medications indicate otherwise.

I will spare you all the details of my case, because I don’t want to re-open that wound, but I’m glad I wrote about it in my memoir, “Broken Silence, a Military Whistleblower’s Fight for Justice,” just in case I had to protest their deliberate ongoing abuse against me, later on or had to reach out to a Congressional official once again.

But at this point, after running into a major roadblock with Senator Isakson’s office, I’ve exhausted all measures and hope, that any member of Congress will help our Veterans!!!  

It’s time to take this matter to a higher Court of Law!!!

Can you spell, “CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT”    

It’s time that Veterans present our injuries before the Supreme Court!!

Today.com reports, "NAVY veteran Heath Phillips, who survived sexual assault, speaks out!!"

Heath Phillips was just 17-years-old when he says he was sexually assaulted during several occasions in 1988 by a group of fellow sailors. He tells TODAY’s Megyn Kelly how despite reporting it to his superiors, he was called a "momma's boy" and told to "toughen up." After originally receiving a “less-than-honorable” discharge, Phillips fought for his dignity, and with the help of an organization called Protect Our Defenders now has a “more-than-honorable” discharge.


Food for thought:
Although Veterans are speaking out, Heath Phillips' case, some 30 years later, the conduct of the Pentagon's top brass will never change because they are given FULL AUTHORITY by Congress, to govern themselves!!

They have their own lawyers, their judges, their jurors, their courthouses, as well as their military prisons!!

Active duty military personnel suffer the most cruelty when they are RETALIATED against by their superiors for reporting crimes, 99% of the time, is when a crime is being committed against themselves.

While serving as a Navy officer, when I reported abuse of authority, to the Navy Inspector General, I was punished, court-martialed and sentenced to serve 60 days in prison, to teach me a lesson, to never challenge the Navy's top brass!! Even when they are committing crimes against the government!!

In 2011, when I began writing about my personal experience, which I later published in my memoir, "Broken Silence, a Military Whistleblower's Fight for Justice," I extended my advocacy support to help other active duty Navy officers, try to make sense of their own experience, when they were retaliated against for reporting Civil and Human Rights violations.

What we all learned from our collective experiences is how the Pentagon blatantly ignores Equal Employment Opportunity Laws!!!!!

After challenging the Navy's abuse of authority in Federal District Court, when my case was remanded to the Board for Correction of Naval Records, for their failure in upholding my whistleblower protection, like Heath, they continued their Retaliation against me.

I finally received the Navy's decision to Judge Collyer's remand order, last year, and they admitted to over a dozen counts of Civil Rights violations but further denied my clemency request, and recommended that I file another Civil Action lawsuit. REALLY?!!! It's as if they are paid to abuse their authority because they can get away with it!!

I recently received a final decision from the Board of Veterans' Appeal (Board) acknowledging a chronic medical condition as a result of Whistleblower retaliation, which the BCNR denied was a result of the abuse of authority from my superiors. Again, REALLY?!!! Talk about Human Rights Violations!!!!!

As more and more Veterans speak out, I've learned that it will take an act of Congress, or the President to force the Pentagon's top brass to uphold the Constitutional Rights of our military servicemembers and respect the hard work they do for our country!!
