For Love Of Country

We all have the right to vote
Every woman and man
But why do some not share their voice
Although they should and can
Some citizens vote electronically
And others by paper and pen
Either way they are exercising their right
The original way or in a den
The important determining factors
Include education, income, and age
Others vote by absentee ballot
So their candidate can still take center stage
Whether voting for president every four years
Or other positions in between
Every vote counts
Although one may feel it is unseen
Other countries have dictators
And people are given no rights
Foreigners dream to come to America
Although it takes extreme heights
From the age of eighteen
If one who is able to vote does not
Say goodbye to our freedom
The democracy established will soon begin to rot
