We The People

We the people
Declare us equal
Vote for Vote
That's what it wrote

Maybe we've forgotten
Where the power lies
In the equal people
We must stand and rise

We dish out the power
Put the power in the leaders
Take back what it ours
Before we fall any deeper

We fear the leaders
The leaders should fear we
Are we really living
In the land of the free?

The powers in our hands
The pen is in the leaders
They can sign whatever they want
We can write in bigger font

Its like since that day
With the Trade Center Tower
We the people
Have lost all power

Stop fearing what it ours
Take it in stride
Stand taller; push harder
Take our leaders for a ride

Face our giant
On it, we are reliant
Don't go against
Form an alliance

We're and immature nation
Full of avoidable tears
And part of growing up
Is facing your fears

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
