The Bumpy Road Ahead (a poem of inspiration)

Updated on October 12, 2014
Take heart my friends.
Take heart my friends.
Our spirits, all to rise up.
Our spirits, all to rise up.
Rises, our spirits in brilliance
Rises, our spirits in brilliance
Not to worry in the night, of what each dawning to bring.
Not to worry in the night, of what each dawning to bring.
Our creator to quail each worry.
Our creator to quail each worry.
Storms may approach
Storms may approach
Darkness may seem to rule.
Darkness may seem to rule.
We shall stand and fight with all our might.
We shall stand and fight with all our might.
Great strength prevails in our unison.
Great strength prevails in our unison.



Take heart, my friends, as a test to begin,

we must be tough, and not disowning,

The road ahead, so bumpy, ours to dread,

its crest, so rough, and very daunting.


Acts by just a few, their bill to come due,

of matters treated, as of their flaunting,

Now for our people, all, this does so appall,

and is so greatly, to be, as haunting.


Those great challenges to meet, and with grit,

We race, to greet, not ours to just, lamely sit,

Never to succumb, to mistakes, all so dumb,

by those outside of the laws. there from.


The illnesses we face, we each must embrace,

This we may see, perhaps, just meant to be,

No terror, so fierce, shall ever to pierce,

our strong hearts, of each, those so free.


Now comes true strength, the brave, in length,

New problems, and our own, to be solved,

No mystery too hard, that we each do regard,

For in our forging onward, all to be resolved.


Our mettle is blessed, its source is the best,

At our creator's breast, in his strong hands,

Onward, we will tread, as our soldiers have bleed,

by those each, over in foreign lands..


The roughest days, all, to pass at last,

in our memories, to be frightful, it seems,

Those times of before, shows our faith to restore,

so remains within our fondest of dreams.


Times, no matter how frail, our flag we shall hale.

united and strong, we all shall prevail.

Our nation will stand, as we're hand in hand,

in our bright resilience, ours never to fail.

A beautiful dawning awaits us all.
A beautiful dawning awaits us all.

      Whonu, this should be recited in every school and said along with the Pledge of Allegiance. It should be tattooed on the inside of our leaders' eyelids!

      Awesome!

      It is refreshing when a tribute is paid to soldiers who've given the best of their youth to go to war. They deserve far more than they get.
