The American Dream
Is losing steam
It’s time to apprise
Revise and realize
Forget anger and division
Seek a new vision
Skip the white picket fences
Let’s come to our senses
Remember the dove
It’s a symbol of love
Let’s heal not hate
So much is at stake

Early in the morning
Late into the night
I’m spinning out of nothing
But you’ve given me something
Showed me I’m born to be
More than my complexities
& false fallacies
You’ve thrown a curve
But I have plenty of verve
In our end
I found my beginning

The nature of time
Is capricious and constant
It comes and goes
Raining finite moments
Into an endless river
That flows deeply
Drowning generations
While resurrecting
From its boundless depths
New ones to swim
In its eternal waters
Of hope and heartbreak
