Consider Me

Sons, daughters off to war,
Been deployed three times before
Consider me!
Property taxes increased, economy down,
Social security investment, not found-
Consider me!
Consider the Americans at the door.
Consider the bill that is on the floor
Consider not re-election but what is right
Consider those who lose sleep at night
Over a system that's too flawed-
Pause, reflect on every decision made
How many Americans share my same plea?
Congress, House of Reps, Mr. President
Consider me!

What can I say about me? To be honest, I am not sure. I grew up in a small family and I have a big heart to help others. My poem was written during the Bush Administration. It is my reflection of the political times of now and then. I thought it ironic how one poem can radiate truth regardless of the era.
