You fill me with passion and desire

To fight for what I believe in

You push me to use my god given right to vote at each election

Sometimes I struggle to decide who’s right or wrong

And often find it’s hard to sift through the lies and the list of broken campaign promises

I watch candidates thrust about their disapproval of their opponent’s current and past efforts

You make certain to point out every candidates flaws

I watch every debate hoping for answers and waiting for change

Thinking that this time things will be different

But we all stand there watching and listening to the bantering

Threats are made

Feelings are hurt

While demands are made but avoided like the plague

No one wants to be accountable for anything

So I slowly step back to make my own escape

I await the nightly news for all political updates

All the while knowing I won’t find any comfort in what I hear

But still it’s my right, it’s my choice and it’s my honor

To VOTE on each and every election day

Despite what the candidates might say

I forgive all the lies I’ve heard

And hope that all go our way

On each election day.
