Your poem has an encouraging, almost pleading, tone for harmony "to ease this nation's weather", where all can become one, united and free. it is expressed in a caring, personal way that is very engaging.

    This is a poem where I express my feelings as an American, but I'm Texano, not many care about my say. People just don't listen to my heart. I wonder if I write as Joseph Adams people would listen more?

reply by LisaMay on 02-Dec-2020
    I shall have to research why you think Joseph Adams is someone you feel might be listened to more by others, as i don't know who he is.
    It saddens me that you feel your opinion is sidelined. I have no experience of prejudice here, but it is something my sense of justice instinctively feels indignant about.

    Joseph Adams comes from my imagination, Jenny. I'm walking with brown skin and to too many, it's a sin :)

reply by LisaMay on 02-Dec-2020
    I've never understood why too many think pink is best... it's hardly white.
    I did google Joseph Adams and discovered he was a true person who was the manager for Ray Charles and he exploited his situation and ripped off Ray Charles's children's estate.

reply by LisaMay on 02-Dec-2020
    Your phrase "I'm walking with brown skin" triggered a poem for me to write. i've just posted it. Thanks for the unfortunate inspiration.

reply by the author on 02-Dec-2020
    See what I mean, Jenny. White or black with a name like that, people listen. :)

Of course, your poem spells the way things should be and we all hope and pray that that is how it will go. But, let us not fool ourselves. The factions that cause hate will not rest until things go their way. And, if they do, God help us.

Amen! I think of all the club entries, yours fit the challenge the best - to call everyone to be unified regardless of what the different party leaders say and do. That's exactly what Marilyn was hoping for when she created this challenge! Bravo!

    Thank you, Helen. I write what comes into my heart. Many times I find myself in need of words so I compromise with my simple language and "pop goes the word" :) Sorry, Helen, I was born crazy.

    Praise God for the uniqueness of each of us!

Very strong words Jose, words that truly make sense. I really liked how you wrote about being side by side, of the struggles and of the unity which thrives among us. Well done.

This is an excellent entry for the Club Unity event. You have said a lot and I wish everyone would take it to heart and act accordingly. I guess the hands are supposed to represent a flag. They are unique.

Unity is what we need in our family, our society and our country. Unfortunately we live in a dictatorship governed country in the last 4 years. We have no hopes of unity but hatred and separation. The situation is not getting better but worse. Fortunately God has heard our prayers and effectively from January 21, 2021 things will be better. Hope is everywhere now.

I like this poem.
