"For, me, it's easy. Just close your eyes. And fly."

It's time to put the differences aside
The time has come to join hands
Now's the moment to make way
For the flight of fortune to finally land

We need to gain our confidence back
We have to relinquish ourselves from fear
It's time we trust in ourselves again
If we really want prosperity here

Lives weren't lost
So we could fight
They hadn't suffered
For us to simply lose sight

Of the importance
That lies in our American dreams
Of each thread of freedom
In every one of Old Glory's seams

We all wanted a change
And now that it's come
It's time for us
To reach our true potential's sum

United we stand
Divided we fall
It's time again
For America to stand tall

So let's move forward
Let's forget the past
Because the hardships
Simply no longer have to last

I wrote this during the very beginning of the Obama administration. I was inspired by his message of hope and unity among all Americans.

I'll be honest, I didn't read them all, but if you organize the book well, just throw in as much as you can. Or maybe start planning what could go in you first book and what could go in your second.

Agreed.  I still don't know if I want to put this one in the book though.  I think my other political poetry is stronger, don't you think?

I wish everybody could read and believe this poem. This is what great minds have been trying to achieve forever.
