To Rise Above

To Rise Above

To rise above anger, hate and despair,
to sail unchained in the rarified air,
to stand your ground when no one cares,
to bravely go where no one dares,

to find your principles and hold them fast,
to remain self-true when you’re the last,
to say “enough” when you’ve had your fill,
to rise above is a matter of will.

Down here is unreason, pain and bad love,
they cannot bind when you rise above.
There is a difference between truth and lies,
to see what it is just open your eyes.

Many are mired in financial gain,
without great wealth their world is a pain.
Things besides cash can we have a wealth of,
and all can bring joy when we rise above.

To find your principles and hold them fast,
to remain self-true when you’re the last,
to say “enough” when you’ve had your fill,
to rise above is a matter of Will.

I think a large majority of people of all political affiliations will tell you that they are not happy with our government. There are many varied and valid reasons why. Depending upon who you ask the government is too big, or it is not big enough, it is too controlling or it isn’t responsive enough, it doesn’t care about the poor or it doesn’t care about the working man, etc., etc.

Even though each citizen may have different ideas about which way we think the country should be going almost all of us can all agree that our elected officials are not leading us there. It is long past time to take control of our government back from those who would subvert it.
