These are trying times, my friend,

And they give us pause for reflection.

We are exhausted from hearing the lies

From those stealing our elections.


We are shocked and disgusted

By the spinning of  facts,

The stories of made-up fiction,

And repeated illegal acts.


What is needed is a new start

In bringing the races together,

To resolve and find a way to achieve

Equal justice and rights forever.


We need to unite and help each other

Stay safe from a virus that kills,

Have respect for the value of human life,

And stop greed from hurting us, still.


We can use this precious moment in time

To build a better tomorrow,

Clean up this toxic environment,

And create jobs in our sorrow.


We must decide in the days to come

Whether to build or destroy

Our Nation as we struggle to rise

To reflect destruction or God’s glory.
