Power of 'I'!

Strength of “We the people” of a Constitution,
Power ‘I’ of one free spirited American.
Individual ‘I’ of equality of free speech rights,
Beautiful ‘I’ of creative independent intelligence,
Citizen ‘I’ blessed over corporate government.

‘I’ of we of red, white, ‘n blue, waving proud Liberty,
‘I’ of we of red-blooded compassionate religions.
‘I’ of we of white paged pure Constitutional letters.
‘I’ of we of blue spreading wings of Freedom.
‘I’ of we of rainbow Democracy hugging America.

‘I’ the poets sharing their naked soul to you,
‘I’ of you searching for bare facts of intelligence.
‘I’ of US seeking out nudity of cleaning truth,
‘I’ of they silencing US, stripping our core values,
‘I’ of we can do it, united as a people nation.

‘I’ added to ‘I’ added with “We the people…”
Foundation of ‘I’ of We!

An inspiring aroma of patriotism in "‘I’ Of We". It stimulates those that want a country to respect its CONSTITUTION and make it OBEYED.

I salute You, Poet.
