We witnessed democracy work on our televisions. What a relief. I hope we are ready to heal now.
I wrote this poem in commemoration of today’s historical process.
Lady Liberty smiled again today.
She knows we will survive the craze.
The Empire State Building stood even taller somehow.
Many of us in awe of our democracy sighed in relief
The country can now begin to restore its traditional belief
that after an election, we stand strong and together with whomever wins.
America matters, we all want it to thrive.
We must work together for our constitution to survive.
Today’s rain may represent the tears of joy
we so needed to shed.
Enough is enough of the fear and the dread.
It is time to be grateful for Science and the Grace of God instead.
We witnessed many receive the first vaccines to abolish COVID 19
Today hope was revived
Our country’s soul has been redeemed.
Sadly, the count of the dead has reached a milestone.
So it is up to us that their deaths will not be in vain.
Let us ring the bells of freedom and brotherly love.
And May God bless America now and forever
from the heavens above.
