71 Days 4 hours and 43 minutes – But who is counting?

The world will be watching closely

It will be listening attentively,

as the days go by.

I can only hope fervently,

as hours and minutes tick away,

that all will be said and done,

and that all of us can finally say,

“Free at last!”

Counting are the unemployed,

the sick and dying,

the crippled economy,

the souls who are hoping

they did not die in vain.

 

Counting are all of us,

especially those suffering the pain

of the loss of loved ones.

 

Counting are those,

who wait patiently for normalcy

whatever that may be.

 

Counting are our children

who do not understand

what is happening.

 

Counting are We The People,

because we were promised

in our constitution

that it would insure

domestic tranquility.

We were given rights.

 

I am counting the days, hours, and minutes yes,

but I am counting on you

that together we will secure

for a more perfect union.

Only when we work in unison

will we finally make change.
