America ! Our Beloved Country'

Our flag and songs, both say' under God
words we once, did proudly hail
Now won't support a cause, that has it's worth
instead we hide behind, a currupted vail
There are wars on the streets, schools and homes
and even battles, between you and me
While childen's being cast in the fire to burn
seems everything has become a mockery
They sell their kids to get a quick fix;
Yes, it is now so easy to do
Have we not learned this happens every day
but the blame is being thrown, but on you
We sat in front of the TV saying not my problem
why take a stand, it's not my fight
But things won't change if we stay in a corner
for even a little help can make things right
Stop throwing stones, who's willing to try
take that time to search your own heart
Look into something that can make a difference
just try to do your part
Many close their minds and shut out justice
by pulling their drapes and close their eyes
They have no pity for the innocent souls
but they sure do have their spies
Look at the distruction all around and about
how hate has been given more fame
and love they refuse and don't want to use
But will fight to get a great name
It is nothing wrong in having riche's
but don't leave your children to raise themselves
Take time to watch out for their little hearts
and not put their lives on the shelves
What has went wrong to the families
Has it come to this" that's it's me, me, me
No more responsiblities, do I want any more
I just want, to be, free, free, free
This was not so in the begining
It once was important just like fine gold
But now everyone has gone, their own way
no more meaning for the family as a whole
God is leaving it up to us to restore our homes
a reunion that He truly will bless
And willing to aide you in taking it back
before it becomes a worser mess
This affects so many things in our society
in our church's schools, and all around
Evil has no respect, of whom or where they are
it can destroy, and bring anything down
Voice's cry out, saying our beloved country
but what are you doing for her?
Will you set and watch, it crumble and fall
is this what, that you do refer
'O great country let us get back to basics
and remember who made her great
We must go back and put God in the front
'O Be Loved Country' don't let be too late










If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Wow, I absoulutely loved this! You are so right! This is a wonderfully-written and very strong piece... Amen! =)
Joyce Poet 30 Oct 2004
Amen! Amen! Amen! It begins in the home... your home, my home, everyONE's home. It's high time we all paid attention to what's going on around us. We ARE the people. And if this is a nation "FOR the people," then we have to rise up! Excellent poetry/excellent points!
