The Constitution

We live by rules engraved in stone
A constitution of our own
With laws to guide the wayward mind
And words enlightening the blind  

A script of wisdom, love and truth
A preamble we learn in youth
Each article is well defined
And laced with phrases that are kind

The laws to which our hearts adhere
Are conscience’s most fragile ear
And when the melody is heard
The deed speaks louder than the word

The heavy wave of oceans churned
Is wisdom won in lessons learned
And those who follow spirit's script
Can man the helm of any ship

The stone in which the law’s enscrolled
Is just the essence of the soul
And tablet etched within the mind
To which the name of God is signed

The Constitution’s from above
The title of it's simply “LOVE”

Elizabeth Santos
