A Poem by a P4P member

Anthony Del Signore is a P4P member and has been an intern with the NYC Independence Party clubs. Most recently,  he coordinated the letter writing campaign to Sen. Schumer conducted by Open Primaries and the NYC Independence Party Clubs. He sent us a poem that he wrote for a college poetry class at Pace University.

This fall, Anthony heads to Temple University for a Ph.D program in political science.

America, The Waiting

By Anthony Del Signore

**

Can it be? Can it be?

Another politician on TV?

Promises of hope and change

Deliverances of sorrow and shame

For a nation so vast and strong at its core

Built on the backs of every man, rich and poor

Watches, in vain, as the rhetoric spews

“I’m right, he’s wrong. You can trust me too.”

Are we so gullible that we cannot see

The real path to change is through you and me?

No partisan bickering or donations for campaign season

Real people, like you and me, with vision and reason.

For God looked down on this great nation

Black and white, love for all no matter the occasion.

So we turn off our TVs and hold our kids tight

Say a prayer and tell them it will be alright.

For America is great, and she will be great once more

From sea to shining sea, here let me give you a tour.

*

From the beaches of San Diego, to the Rockies’ high peaks

The industrious Detroit to Vicksburg and Pittsburgh

From Silicon Valley to Tornado Alley

To Beantown and Newtown

We are all one in the same.

No matter the name, we never strive for fame.

The American Dream is one that cannot be deferred.

We must stand our ground as our Fore Fathers preferred.

We can no longer wait for change to occur.

So, look inside your heart and let your voice be heard.
