Patriotic - What It Means To Me
Patriotism - This, Not That!
I used to feel pressured to “be patriotic”
It had to be the “right” kind of patriotic
If I faltered it didn’t fit their “views”
Their kind of patriotism didn’t feel good to me
It felt shady, forced, and untrue.
THAT was not right...THAT was not me!
Later in my life, my eyes became wide open
And I saw their patriotism for what it was
Now, THIS Patriotism that is sweeping the nation
Is MY kind of Patriotism!
THIS Patriotism comes from the very depths of my soul
And expands outward
Enveloping all in its path in Love and Light!
THIS Patriotism has become my Life
It directs me toward the better Path
It compels me to Give to Others
It nourishes my Heart!
I am so very proud to call myself a Patriot now
Because it stands for “real” Truth,
Real Compassion, real Faith in our beloved Leaders.
So, I thank all you Patriots of this Second American Revolution
For “showing” me what True Patriotism is!
From my Heart to Yours…
I will love you always.
God Bless You All.
