The Winds of Change

In 2011 I rode a Harley-Davidson from Los Angeles to New York and then onto Canada and finally to Denver Colorado. Today I found some poetry that I had written on my journey. I was going to copy into this page – instead I wrote this. For you America.

America you have always endured and within that endurance is your perseverance and optimism.

That is who you are America.

Never have thee failed that which is sought of thee,

Always to the fore your best, never to the rear do you flee

Now America an evil stalks your every shadow

Each sorrow of death a mighty blow as if you to strike you down

But no, not America – a land blessed with the heart of the mighty

The soul of the free and a trojan spirit of democracy

Stand as one and there is nought that can defeat thee

Your pride to be a Nation United never a Nation Divided

Godspeed America be as one do not let Evil defeat thee

For God gives blessing to those who stand beside him.
