A Day of Reckoning

Updated on November 17, 2016
New buds, new life...
New buds, new life...

Do take heart my brothers and sisters,

For it's now a new day's about to arrive,

As we shall put aside all our worries,

Having no fear, as long as we're alive.

Those yesterdays of such a suffering,

Today we shall so justly, to overcome,

As a united people, all across this land,

A strong America, is where we're from.

Made of sterner stuff, tough inside,

As this so defines us each and all,

We must pull together for better life,

Now's the time for our walking tall.

There's a reckoning for past events,

All of the damages have been done.

The good shall be rewarded in time,

Now it's the evil we shall all so shun.

Making right all wrongs, each soul belongs,

For we are made of our God's earthly soil.

Together we shall succeed by every deed,

It's then we'll be rewarded for our own toil.

Yes, it's a reckoning now coming, my friends,

Those misdeeds to be corrected and forgiven,

Our Maker, by grace, forgives the human race,

Where every spirited soul has then so striven.

A flower of hope...
A flower of hope...

      This is a message for us as people who need to right the past wrongs. I pray we become united as the years pass.

      I'm seeing a recurring theme across HP since the election. One of unity and strength.
