A chance with you now,
To wallow or fight,
To talk to you’r spirit or assume you are right.
A feeling of comfort,
Or paranoia of pain,
It will never matter, you don’t see the chain.
I sit and I ponder,
Now I see,
The present is only, the future can’t be.
Destroy or create but,
A word to the wise,
Forget your regrets, there made up of lies.
Beat yourself up,
You’ll never be safe,
You must get out of pattern, or suffer your fate.
A gift from the past,
A chance at the future,
Taken in vain, now you are the loser.
A past of potential,
A mind filled with cause,
Nothing to stop me but a fear of a loss.
A loss of time,
A shame of the waste,
The mind switches perspective to revisit the case.
So much have I loved,
No more fear of regret,
From all the time wasted I have no more for stress.
Of all taken for granted,
I wish for the best,
And the past keeps on growing so plenty is left.
Not to take lightly,
Don’t move to fast,
Memories now, forever will last.
I am not proud of all of the country’s choices, but consider these amazing accomplishments that make me very proud to be apart of this great country.
1787 Created the constitution Avoiding religious prosecution
“Good for us” Pun intended
1865 The 13th amendment Freed the slaves.
“Finally! I know, it took a while after to actually get there full rights, but we got started making things right and slavery is still a thing elsewhere. Glad that’s over here in the US.”
“Wait for it”
1919 Women get the right to vote “Bam! Took us long enough”
Now, I know there are many pros and cons, but these are some of the pros that make me very patriotic.
Also let it be known, if America wasn’t created with so many different cultures coming together. I would not have the benefit, of learning and loving in close quarters, all of the beautiful cultures this world has, and I know I would not have the same appreciation for the many diverse people that inhabit our awe inspiring planet.
Be thankful and work hard for you country.
We can do better yet.
