Sculpture or Welded (Poem)
Being one of firsts sculpted his stature
First president born in United States
Focused on farming not power
Laid foundations for role of President
Yet this does not tell us of the man
Who welded in our patriotic hearts!
Still reminiscing of the gifts he left behind
Selling his property not his citizens
He would only sell to industry
Who willingly would hire freed slaves;
Yet to this day we still beckon this same song
Where have we gone wrong?
Could it be as a Man our first President?
Determined right from wrong
This was welded firmly in his heart
Heart of flesh not of steal or might
No fabrication does this entail
Only that of truth will avail
To this country not a mere sculpture
But tenants of heart built on
A true foundation of faith
Where power and truth arise,
His missives were lengthy to ensure
His heart was shown with clarity,
Has this been the pattern of many:
Who follow in this office?
Our lives would show the clarity
Not welded promises which corrode.
Let us bring back the majesty
Of this persons sculpture
Not of man but of his soul
So we all may be free.
