We grow restless with our disappointment
of politicians hiding under fancy masks.
Their eyes twinkling with their deceit,
their talk sketchy like art undefined.
The journey begins with good will,
the will wears down, reality knocking.
They declare passion for the children,
but they support cuts in education,
while children wait in the shadows.
They spend and claim to reduce.
First they get elected then amnesia,
ideology and promises are soon forgotten.
The burdens of the middle class,
screams out loud on deaf ears.
Unemployment, foreclosure,health-care,medicare, gas prices.
Is anyone listening to the people?
We can't deny freedom of speech,
our first amendment always so precious.
We can't deny our strong core,
blood is spilled, blood is sacrificed.
Not at all easy, it's complicated.
Satisfy us with some simple answers,
satisfy us with actions that work.
Awaken us with your beating heart,
our desire will ignite the fire,
our pride restored , our dreams alive.
