If you watch the news, you are probably aware of the turmoil in this country. Sometimes, I feel as if the core of its foundation is trembling. I have to admit that the state of its affairs has overwhelmed me and even influence my mood and disposition. I don’t know if it is my perception but seems to me as if everything we have believed in, honored, and even taken from granted in this country is being tested in many levels.
I understand that for change to happen there has to be turmoil first; what is hidden must come to light and be known in order to facilitate change and growth. There can’t be a future without a past, and the only pathway to it is the present. With a heavy heart and love for country these words I wrote.
Red, white and blue
stripes, colors, liberty and woes.
Inside my heart the colors run
Red, white and blue, a patriot’s blood.
Feeling the blues
the eagle soars
deep within me
its wings so broad.
With every flap I feel its pain
looking for justice, hope, not disdain.
A nation ready to overcome
A people ready, in God we trust.
Red, white, and blue
the eagle soars anew.
Faith, liberty, justice, for one and all.
A people ready to honor God.
