Feast Of November

New world we set course, lost in the moment, to fail is no option, for all is deemed hopeless –

Tossed by the waves,
Sickness surround me,
Our journey months waiting,
With will now resounding,

Left persecution,
In search of new home
Must learn to survive,
As we await the unknown,

The ones left behind,
What will become,
The land now before us,
Untamed and left young,

Eyes now alert,
As we reach upon shore,
To think I’m of few,
First to explore,

Time passes quickly,
Winter has fallen,
Many have passed,
Disease and exhaustion,

Food is now scarce,
Why have we come,
This land is foresaken,
Death won’t be long,

A miracle needed,
Time is of essence,
Suffering rampant,
Children to heaven,

Oh lord now be with me,
Hope it seems lost,
A native has come,
Surely war wont be long…..

Mother I write you,
Our voyage was made,
When all was begotten,
Our family was saved,

Indigenous people,
Showed us to farm,
A harsh land was woken,
A feast was then born,

Im thankful today,
As some have survived,
So giving they were,
With tears to our eyes

We feast now on roots,
Hunt and grow strong,
Thanksgiving was born,
By the hands of them all,

Freedom For America

Let it be spoken, that on this day,
A new America, will lead the way,

No politics or partitions made, just honor, respect, for lives we gave,

Freedom was granted, heavy in cost,
The strong survived, our best were lost,

Every soldier that passes, to protect our flag,
Our Bill of Rights, Constitution clad,

While Lady Liberty, overlooks the ocean,
Standing proudly, promoting notions,

Freedom of speach, a voice in the world,
Religion our right, persecution endured,

Justice for all, our democracy fight,
Push on until last, our stars will yield light,

A country so gifted, remembrance now  paid, beloved my pledge,
Truly yours,
U.S.A

Ben Franklin Quote

“For my own part I wish the Bald Eagle had not been chosen the Representative of our Country. He is a Bird of bad moral Character. He does not get his Living honestly. You may have seen him perched on some dead Tree near the River, where, too lazy to fish for himself, he watches the Labour of the Fishing Hawk; and when that diligent Bird has at length taken a Fish, and is bearing it to his Nest for the Support of his Mate and young Ones, the Bald Eagle pursues him and takes it from him.

“With all this Injustice, he is never in good Case but like those among Men who live by Sharping & Robbing he is generally poor and often very lousy. Besides he is a rank Coward: The little King Bird not bigger than a Sparrow attacks him boldly and drives him out of the District. He is therefore by no means a proper Emblem for the brave and honest Cincinnati of America who have driven all the King birds from our Country…

“I am on this account not displeased that the Figure is not known as a Bald Eagle, but looks more like a Turkey. For the Truth the Turkey is in Comparison a much more respectable Bird, and withal a true original Native of America… He is besides, though a little vain & silly, a Bird of Courage, and would not hesitate to attack a Grenadier of the British Guards who should presume to invade his Farm Yard with a red Coat on.”

Silent nights, berated souls,
Hunger, hopeless, a want for all,

Sound of scense, narrow sight,
Release, retreat, that lonely night,

Surrender solitude, fortitude gone,
Strength, charisma, before than long,

Power in motion, lifecycle change,
Reverse, restore, our American names,

Sublime in message, born republic,
Patriot, Flag, the tathered or blooded,

Show the fallen respect, for love of this country,
Red white or blue, till death will become we
