Poetry By Chuck



Finding ourselves in times of tragedy
Cooperating with each other in times of adversity

Cementing our freedom in times of denial
Creating our lives in times of hardship

Understanding ourselves in times of doubt
Protecting our loves in times of trouble

Honoring our courage in times of strife
Returning with honor after times of conflict

Remembering our justice and equality for all
Applying our patience to those who fall

Seeking our revenge from our enemies
Limiting our response to measurements

Rebuilding our economy and lives
Strengthening our resolve and love

Finding ourselves in each other.
Discovering our souls in God above.

Remembering our lost,
and our love together.

We vow to fight, for each other.

God Bless America.

In the wake of the 9/11 terror, we needed to pull together and we did.

I think Americans could pull together a lot more, but I agree with this poem. The only line I didn't understand was Applying our patience to those who fall. Liked the red, white and blue "God Bless America" at the end. Nice work.

You've done a great job with this poem. I really like your picture at the top. I showed it to my husband, who's an Army solider and he really liked it. I believe his exact words were "That's the honest truth." Great job.
