As a mom poem...
· Posted by Heather on October 27, 2009 at 12:00pm
I had a dream last night, after I tucked my toddler into bed
About what her future holds, And what may lie ahead
graduation, wedding bells and laughter
I should have been dreaming about her happily ever after
But sadly it was other
things, that were raging in my head
Instead of images of happiness, I found chains instead
No longer was free will and
market a national institution
You see the concept of social justice replaced the constitution
Where once personal initiative
and responsibility soared
The government gained control and the individual was ignored
Embraced was a new system of
taxes, fines and regulations
Bailouts, TARPs and handouts became the new expectation
Before long 'We the Special Interest'
replaced 'We The People'
And our paychecks were redirected to the governments own steeple
The politician knows what’s
best for us, or at least that’s what they said
“Do what we ask and we will give you milk and eggs and bread.”
we followed blindly, as our country was transforming
From a focus of God & family to that of Global Warming
of focusing on issues like jobs, immigration and Iran
Like sheep we followed our Shepard while chanting “Yes We Can”
didn’t even notice that our liberties had been debaced
Or that our Founding Fathers had been thoroughly disgraced
all the hope and hugs and change, it became too late
We greedily sold out our children as we took the bait
chains they slaved away, day in and day out
To pay off debt that we incurred so we wouldn’t go without
and false security my daughters future had been lost
And in that moment I awoke, to defend her at all cost
In my dream
it was too late, but in reality it is not
We the people hold the power, or this have you forgot?
“Give me Liberty
or give me death,” These words ring loud and clear!
Embrace them now or I am sure that Liberty will disappear!
a mom” it's up to us to stand our ground and fight
Not for what is popular, but for what is right.
Now is the
time for change, we no longer have a choice
For our kid's future, rise up and share your voice
If "As A Mom" is the
battle cry that's rings out in the night
Only one sword will be necessary, in this epic fight
That sword will be knowledge;
to binding chains this is fatal
For the hand that rules the world is the one that rocks the cradle
