The Heart of America


Sounds of sorrow on the winds
I hear cries of yesterday
and though we face this terror
our unity is here to stay.

The screams of horror filled the air
with a deadly, erie sound
yet still we stand united
feet planted firmly on our ground.

Our nation will not be diminished
our resolution will never sway
for as a people we are America
and as a united country
we will never go away.

If they think they have succeeded
my friend they sadly are mistaken
for all they've managed to accomplish
is the heart of America they have awakened.

Yes! We will cheer each other on, and what the enemy intended for evil, will make us even stronger.

Thank you all very much.  It was an honor for me to have this poem be read as an opening in the local radio broadcast for a prayer for peace.  I was astounded! It is great to be an American.

On the wings of words our spirits fly....and our souls are free.

The heart of America beats strong and true
we stand proud under the red, white, and blue!

It is in this time of need that we unite.  Thank you for this.
