Poetry Thursday
My 400th post!

My American Friends

My dearest American friends
Wonderful loving souls that you are
May our flags always kiss!
For without our alliance
I would be deeply saddened
I hold you non accountable
For what your government has done
I plead for the same respect
Individually you are such a blessing
I hear the peace in your voices
And the love in your hearts
It exudes in the beauty that is
Red, white and blue
You have been misrepresented
But I pray one day that will change
And your true colors
Will once again reign with vibrancy
Radiating the truth that is you
I pray for
your safety
and that of our fragile world
That peace will encompass us
and we will always
Hold hands across the borders!

I love you all; have a safe and happy 4th of July!

We shouldn't be held accountable for our present govt...but many countries think it is the people that are to blame.
Glad you know I am not even remotely responsible...Looking forward to peace time...so glad we can hold hands across the border.
Thanks for a great poem.

Wonderful words - glad to read them. Sometimes I absorb a bit of guilt even though I've been protesting since 2001.
