Publisher’s note: There is hope for American youth. I frequently come across different articles and thoughts from readers, and as far as I can remember, this is the first piece of poetry I’ve ever had grace the pages of The Patriots Press.
The author, Ryan Byrd, is a 26 year old native of South Florida and is a true Patriot. He is an aspiring writer with many passions who has overcome many obstacles in his lifetime and always tries to find the good where there seems to be none.
He is a very insightful young man who loves America and obviously has a firm grasp of what is going on in our nation and the world. Writing straight from the heart, he makes the reader think of what we so easily might forget with all the stuff going on all the time.
I offer my sincere thanks to Ryan for sharing this with me so that I can share it with my readers.
Ryan Byrd: Dark America...
It's not the men in suits, then who? The higher ups, it's always a cover up.
Saying it’s controversial, I say what's constitutional. What's educational when a system is broken, when the voices aren't spoken?
Like a puppet on a string, the national anthem we can't sing.
We can't pray, say what we wanna say, it won't end today. We will keep living forever, even in a dark America.
The soldiers can't breathe, we fall to our knees. We want to believe that there are patriots that stay true to the steadfast glory of the red, white, and blue.
The debt, the body count…they all rise with the White House of lies.
Our pride might be broken, but we will not be shaken.
We will still move forward and onward.
In a dark America we still live forever.Add a comment
