America is a interesting place. It is the country I call home.
The United States has its good and bad times. I think we will eventually get through the corona pandemic. It may take some time and a lot of research to find a cure but we will one day get there.
I wanted to write a poem about America. There is no place quite as unique as the United States. I was born and raised in America. The poem below is a tribute to where I live and how I view my country.
A dynamic place rich in culture
The prosperous darling on
Naysayers, pot bangers, protesters
The politically driven minds of
sometimes right and sometimes wrong
A nation of many faces
both white and black,
Asian and Hispanic
The multitude of races working hard to
climb the ladder of
built on values and principles
A country of laws and customs
The music fierce and addictive
like crack to its user
dark and bright
Yes, that's my America
Here is another poem I wrote about five years ago. It is about the bible. A book, I strongly value and believe in. It is my ode to the holy scriptures.
A Bible Verse
Sacred parables of wisdom
hidden in time and wonder
Here are few more of my poems that I wrote in my spare time. It ranges in tone and expression. I hope to inspire with my poetry.
The pages of our lives turn like a
book newly read
Overtones mark its transition
even school boys can't write its ending
Autumn sun battles
Grey nimbus clouds
As we drift into
tomorrow's battle cry
A feeling that never lasts
leading to a road closed
as we count the past
as seconds gone by
The waves indulated like exhausted lungs
Its darting movements primordial in nature
Rattling like warring drums
Jubilation fades like tans
above the rainy sky
When opportunity knocks
I will be standing at the door
waiting for an invitation to come in
and grab my chance at success
It will by my calling
when opportunity knocks

This is a great selection of your poetry. You are skilled at selecting the appropriate words to write economically, yet still convey a strong message.

An interesting collection of poems, and I like your ode to America. Good job.
