America... Land Of The Free?
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

America…  The Land Of The Free???


America…  “The land of the free and

home of the brave.”

Is now home to many in bondage an

d sin’s captive slave.


Many seem to be weighed down

 by many lusts inside.

While many boast of their foolishness and pride.


It’s almost like it’s more popular to

 “come out of the closet.”

The motto; “In God we trust.” 

America has LOST IT!


We are witnessing a loss of respect

for God and authority.

As many chase dreams that end up

in emptiness and vanity.


Many have rejected God and make bad choices.

As they reject God’s word and listen to many voices.


America needs God and repent like never before!

As each hour passes, we need to seek

 him more and more!


Without God, there’s a void in all of us that

can’t be replaced!

Right now, we need to seek God’s

 forgiveness and grace!


America…  If we as a nation want to be

a land of the free…

Needs to repent to God.  It begins

with you and me!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
