“Restoring Freedom”


It’s a new year in the “Free World”

Majestic clouds roll by

with a cool breeze off the water

I sit and ponder why


A world that looks so peaceful

could end up such a mess

we blink for just a moment

Enough I can not stress


Just what I think we’re headed for

Might never been the same

It’s much too late to worry now

Of fault and who’s to blame


It’s time for us to take a stand

Indeed we must make haste

For the price we paid for freedom

Is far too great to waste


Instead let’s look for answers

And leaders who are just

To help redeem our principles

Restore our nation, our trust


For all this pointing fingers

The lies, deceit and hate

And choosing to ignore the task

Could easily seal our fate


It’s time to bring together

Once great is now forlorn

With pride, hope and love

In the image she was born


So on this of all election years

I beg you, please reflect

And choose your part, no goal too small

Return our dignity and respect


I don’t believe we’ve lost her yet

Yet we must stop keeping score

Instead seek wisdom from our past

To learn there’s so much more


Bless all those who gave us strength

From generations past

To show their dreams were not in vain

And truly meant to last


I beg of you all to do your part to maintain our freedoms in this country.  I fear if we ever lose them, we may never see them again in our lifetime..
