a proud poet

A emotional mess
Building something with words

They past the test
When the impossible occured

They saw the picture
That was painted by God

And try to describe
With majisty and awe

We treasure love
In all of its forms

The pureness of nature
And deceit and scorn

We stand united
By just three words

We the people
Demand to be heard

We shout out treason
From the mountain top

Go barely noticed
And soon forgot

We gave them the reason
And told them the plot

We gave the speech
And then we got shot

I need the world
To hear what I'm saying

Lovers and politicians
They need to stop playing

    We put everything we feel into a poem and try to express our feelings. We want others to hear what we have to say in regards to daily life. Hope you had a wonderful new years. love phyl

    A proud poet ... can also be very vulnerable poet. Many people often put their whole soul in a poem. - Very well written John. - oxox // Anne-Lise :)
