I am a soldier who served my country in the past,
Hoping the things I stood up for would forever last.
Things change though, and people do as well,
Sometimes living our lives can seem like we’re locked up in a jail.
We live in a land that is supposed to be free,
So as you read on, consider this my plea.
Stop dividing yourselves amongst one another,
Find some common ground and treat your neighbor as your brother.
Stop worrying about what might or might not be fair,
Instead, focus on the good things together we can share.
Change does not happen when we shout and scream,
But rather when we work together to accomplish an amazing dream.
It’s time to focus less on mistakes, and more on solutions,
Together we can overcome with brilliant resolutions.
You see, when we fuss and fret about not getting our way,
People are less likely to listen to what we have to say.
It’s understanding and caring on both sides of the fence,
Putting aside your differences is what makes the most sense.
I want to live in an America that is full of opportunity,
But how can that happen when our greatest trait is scrutiny?
So let’s all join together with hope and a kind smile,
Even a hardened heart will soften after awhile.
Together there is nothing that we can not do,
But just as it takes me, it also takes you.
Psalm 133:1 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!
Romans 12:10 Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another
What are some ways you can serve your country, even from your own home?
If you could change one thing about this country, what would you chance? How can you help change it?
