"This Country Roots" by poetsteve15
This Country Roots  
            ~ + ~

Like an old tall tree, resilient and strong,
we stand firmly rooted in family values and
traditions: we are committed to our children,
and your children's, children. We will uphold
every part of our lineage allowed, then and only
then will our roots become deep enough to
with-stand anything that comes at her.

Like the tallest redwood, these trees
must have been started right after Noah's time
for them to get to stand so big and tall.
Stronger than any other tree. But her roots run
deep; sure; there will be droughts. But with
her roots that are running deep. They will Keep her
standing tall just as this country of ours always does.

As if from an old oak tree. This nation is firmly rooted.
I was mistaken when I said, the other party had no ethics.
because a party is not made up of just one man.
It is made up of all of us working together as one nation,
This nation was built under God,
that Jesus paid for with His blood;
and that our Veterans paid for with theirs.
Yes, we do have a strong foundation, cause she
does not care which tree she holds up, only that she does.
Within this country of ours, as long as we keep feeding
her with truth, liberty, freedom, and kindness,
she will continue to grow as great as she did before.
Just believe in her...
