OUR PROMISE TO THE FUTURE

Poem Commentary

what have we really left for the future generations, a polluted gulf, smog,drugs,murder,despair and this we call our perfect world, why would anyone want to take over the future of such a dismal place, unless we change things now, there will be no future

OUR PROMISE TO THE FUTURE

Behold for we are here,
The children freedom has made,
We are the promise of a new future,
This generation and the next,
We are the ones you built this world for,
We are your dreams and desires made real,
We are the one's you gave birth too,
With the intentions of following in your footsteps,
Too a better world, A better place and future,
We are the hopes and prayers of the new world,
Left to continue this legacy you created,
With pride in our duty we look forward,
To what you have created for us to take over,
MY GOD WHAT HAVE YOU DONE,
WHAT DID YOU LEAVE US...............................

It's hard to celebrate the birth of a nation when so many have forgotten why we fought for our freedoms in the first place.
