The beauty of each culture is sometimes not visible due to the language barrier. If you see only the differences; you will never experience the gifts provided by other ethnicities.
This poem was written last year; just in case someone assumed it was written to commemorate Angela Merkel’s being elected to a historic 4th term as German Chancellor. It will be featured in my upcoming book the Beauty Behind Shattered Crystals. This book includes biographical poetry on certain political figures as well as satirical political poetry.
East German raised, West German born, two distinct
Worlds separated loved ones, young girl’s perception of
The world being formed, devout Lutheran upbringing,
Great wall crumbling, free to leave embraces logic,
Science; yet holds fast Christian values Great
Faith become German Chancellor
De facto leader of European Union she fully embraces
Balancing act; German Chancellor, understanding German
Citizen’s needs, legislating European Union unbiased,
All countries may benefit, elected to fourth term, first woman
Chancellor, The Decider, not easily persuaded by public
Opinion does what is needed when opposition withstands her
Christian leader not afraid defend her faith welcomed immigrants,
Opened Germany’s borders, help all in need,
Scientist rules with logic, lead Germany out of recession,
Provide stimulus packages, subsidies companies, cut workers’ hours,
Balanced budget, created fiscal surplus logic guiding her
Managed Euro crisis
Angela Merkel, Leader of the Free World one of the most
Powerful women on earth.
I am so grateful for the re-election of Chancellor Angela Merkel. Her party will have the majority, however the SDP and AFD will hold a decent number of seats as well.
Tomorrow we will know the results in the German election. Whether Chancelor Merkel be reelected and which political parties will gain or lose representation.
It is selfish for me to only pray for my country…the country in which I was born. We live in a global world that is inclusive of all ethnicities and religious groups. Now is the time when people of every country arises and prays for the success of all nations.
I have no problem confessing my love for Germany. If anyone has been paying attention to the news, Germany will be holding their elections on September 24th. The United States recent Presidential election results shocked the world as President Trump was elected into office. His rhetoric seemed at times both sexist and racist in hopes of uniting his base while dividing the country between whites and minorities. This scare tactic is widely used in politics. It has been reported that the leader of the Alternative for Germany party is using this same method to create an increase in the division between Germans and other ethnic and religious groups. It is my prayer that the people of Germany look at the US as an example of the unexpected results that stem from citizens gamblig on the unknown candidate. President Trump’s policies have caused many Americans to cringe. It feels as if he passes legislation daily and we really have no idea what bill will be imposed next.
I pray for the spirit of discernment for the people of Germany and wisdom to vote for the candidate most qualified for the task.
If the life you are living is unsatisfactory, unfullfilling….then change the course. Craft a new plan that leads you on a journey of self-fullfillment.
If I new the last time I looked into your eyes would in fact be the last time; I would not have turned away so quickly
If I knew the last time we embraced would be the last time I felt your body touching me; I would have held you longer
If I knew yesterday that you would be taken from me tomorrow…I would have broken the clock, suspended time, and tomorrow would never arrive.
My grandfather passed away at the age of 90. The family was not surprised as he had several health challenges. He was the patriarch of our family and the oldest living relative. I am thankful for the life he lived and the wisdom he tried to impart into all of us.
We dated a total of four and a half years. We were engaged planning our future together. Until we realized our goals didn’t position us closer instead they separated us. Now single with only my dreams guiding me…. I move forward.
Sparkle in every flame not quite the same
orange, blue, reds appear no particular
order just lights the glorious way
In the woods I am feared spread
faster than any other you
watch helpless praying to be rescued
before all turned ruble
Marvel at my greatness I consume
any environment without warning oil, gas
are friends partner with me propel
my force dry ground my companion,
wind my accomplice combine mystery
of my treasure unfolds.
