Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
Some of my daily thoughts in poetic form
"Poetic Diary 2020 - Entry 1" by the13thpoet
A new year is finally here
Yet the old ways still remain
Dishonesty, greed and hate
Infects the heart and brain

We continue to pray for a better day
But it's been this way all along
More concerned with left and right
Instead of what's right and wrong

The two sides, the red and blue
Are nothing more than political gangs
While the one percent has all the dollars
We the people can make the change

Like most Americans
I sincerely love this country
Let this plea be my first entry
For a hopeful 2020

Author Notes
For the readers who have read my poetic diary, this is the 2020 version of the Poetic Diary which I started in 2008. As we are limited to two posts a day, I probably won't post a new entry everyday if other ideas or contests that I want to enter come up. Thank you for reading and have a great day!
