America, The Waiting
By Anthony Del Signore
Can it be? Can it be?
Another politician on TV?
Promises of hope and change
Deliverances of sorrow and shame
For a nation so vast and strong at its core
Built on the backs of every man, rich and poor
Watches, in vain, as the rhetoric spews
“I’m right, he’s wrong. You can trust me too.”
Are we so gullible that we cannot see
The real path to change is through you and me?
No partisan bickering or donations for campaign season
Real people, like you and me, with vision and reason.
For God looked down on this great nation
Black and white, love for all no matter the occasion.
So we turn off our TVs and hold our kids tight
Say a prayer and tell them it will be alright.
For America is great, and she will be great once more
From sea to shining sea, here let me give you a tour.
From the beaches of San Diego, to the Rockies’ high peaks
The industrious Detroit to Vicksburg and Pittsburgh
From Silicon Valley to Tornado Alley
To Beantown and Newtown
We are all one in the same.
No matter the name, we never strive for fame.
The American Dream is one that cannot be deferred.
We must stand our ground as our Fore Fathers preferred.
We can no longer wait for change to occur.
So, look inside your heart and let your voice be heard.
