America's Heartbeat

Ever growing in pride,
Knowing what it takes
To stand strong when tried.
America’s heartbeat remains.

Freedom still comes at a price,
A soldier lost his life today.
Hearts are low, but spirits high.
America’s heartbeat is gain.

She lifts high her head
With the hope of making things right.
Strongly and reverently lead,
America’s heartbeat ever resides.

She breathes in freedom
And speaks of hope for the future.
Her song longs to be sung,
America’s heartbeat desires to be pure.

Feeling the pangs
Of her labor and will,
She elects her fame.
America’s heartbeat, strong and still.

She’s known from which she’s named,
For instilled in her is integrity and justice.
Red, white and blue run through her veins,
America’s heartbeat is in every dream and wish.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
