Touched - Poem by James Detzler

How many days must it be
Till I feel that fiery sensation
Till I feel the power
To lead a nation

While I lay here and ponder
And wonder why must I wait
And wonder why the world
Must decide this, my fate

Sometimes I sit and brew
Am I really not good enough
Am I really such a bane
Is it supposed to be this tough

My heart lays here withering yet,
It doesn’t want to give up
It doesn’t want to let its dreams go
Watching them all pour out like water from a cup

I can’t give up yet
I’ve got to let my love grow
I’ve got to let hope keep my fire alive
I will not let my soul bow

Emerging the victor in love
Will cause a face to glow
Will cause a feeling like no other
For love, that touch, my heart I owe
