Poem: My Audacity to Hope


My Audacity to Hope

I cannot believe that I have been caught up in:

The audacity to hope,
For a better America.

The insanity to dream,
For our constitutional rights.

The ecstasy to think,
That America would become a peaceful superpower.

And the sadness to know,
That this was all a huge PR campaign.

Change, was a hopeful way of gift wrapping,
More of the same and worse.

I wrote this poem because I have been very disappointed with with what Obama has accomplished since he has been president. The health care bill does very little to make health care affordable and guaranteed for everyone Obama’s Health Care Bill Is Enough to Make You Sick and the health care bill was written by the former VP of Wellpoint Baucus Thanks Wellpoint VP Liz Fowler for Writing Health Care Bill

Obama will not hold Bush accountable for his crimes, he has extended the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest 2% which could cost our country as much as 4 trillion dollars according to Barack Obama gives way to Republicans over Bush tax cuts.

He has also extended the “anti-patriotic act” Obama seeks longer PATRIOT Act extension than Republicans and much much more anti the people on Main Street while helping to line the pockets of those on Wall Street.

About Amy Marschak

I have been writing since I was little and found myself bored but yet still trapped in a classroom. So instead of staring out the windows at school, I would write poetry in the margins of all of my school notes. And in this way I could pass the time without having to listen to the teacher when they were being boring or depressing. A few of these poems are in my first book “Poetry for All Those Breathing” which is now in its Seventh Printing. Poetry has always been a way for me to be heard by my family. If I would simply state how I felt, I would frequently be ignored but if I wrote it as a poem, what I had to say would be listened to. Sometimes my parents would even cry when they heard my poetry.
