We the People

We the people

thus began and begins

the Constitution of the United States of America

We the people

sign our names and commit to

serve our country

have, do, and will

fight for liberty on a battlefield

fight for the law in a court room

fight for rights in a nursing home

fight for neighbors in Congress

We the people

have, do, and will

give hope to those without

give dignity to those without

give work to those without

give life to those without

give to those without

We the people

have, do, and will

work the common good

for unity

for justice

for protection

for welfare

for liberty

***

We the People

We the People

We the People

have died

Please don’t be offended.

Then, again,

be offended,

if necessary

The ideals of our forefathers

The work of our servicemen and women

The sacrifice of our leaders

has been tarnished by our acts

or lack of acts

We the People

have died

Me the Person

has taken their place

The United States of America

founded on liberty and unity

cannot stand

when we are no longer United States

and instead

self-centered individuals who have to deal with others to get what we want

We the People

have died

***

Please

prove me wrong

show me that

We the People

lives

Please

for we cannot keep on standing on the successes of yesterday

if we are going to face tomorrow

we cannot stand on history alone

if we are going to have victory in the future

Please

prove me wrong

We the People

We the People

We the People


If you do not stand firm in your faith,
    you will not stand at all.

-Isaiah 7:9


My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.

– John F. Kennedy
