A Better Tomorrow

As jaws of hell consume our city streets
Division reigns within all fifty states
But hope for change within my heart still beats
Perhaps in your heart, too, it resonates

November ushers in a choice to make
That could, in fact, restore tranquility
Releasing blazing cities from their stake
As embers fade, we’ll find humanity

I’ve faith a new leader will take control
Eliminate mistrust and speak the truth
He’ll chart a path that’s sure to make us whole  
Restoring calm to disenchanted youth

If polls are right, we’ll end our Civil War
Serenity’s within our grasp once more

We the people must unite and work for a better tomorrow. Even with a leader as president, 'we the people' can make the positive difference if we try. Well written Carolyn :)

Very good sonnet, Carolyn. I won't discuss politics but I will say neither Donald Trump nor Joe Biden is Abe Lincoln. This country needs a strong leader who can unite the country and neither of those fit the bill. However i do like the sonnet. best of luck sweet lady:)

Profound and poignant poem. It saddens my heart about the turmoil in our country. You captured it beautifully and interlocked Hope throughout the poem. Well done my friend. Love Chantelle

I suspect Americans are so accustomed to outright lies they won't recognise the truth even if it slaps them in the face! but you may make some progress over the next few weeks! Aloha! Rico
