NOTE: I thank those who have spread the word of my site. I do not spend money advertising. I do not ask for money. My poems are free so that even the poorest of the poor can be comforted with my poetry. I am pleased when others are blessed. No amount of money can surpass that. I am now blessed with about 10,000 page views per month and my prayer is that through my poetry, that this world can become a safer, more loving and respectful place - that those who do not know who Jesus really was (and still is), will come to know the peace, healing, sacrifice and grace He has given to those who truly believe in Him and faithfully follow. I pray that you enjoy my story poems...

I LOVE AMERICA! 11-26-13

I don't love America because of its free economy.
I don't love America because of its strong military.
I don't love America because of its great inventions.
I don't love America because we can worship freely.
I don't love America because I can get my free stuff.
I don't love America because we care for one another.
I don't love America because I can make a ton of money.
I don't love America because my political party is in power.
I don't love America because we protect our interests around the world.
I don't love America because over a million innocent babies are killed each year
& I don't love America because we've replaced them with illegals jumping our borders.

No, I LOVE AMERICA because "WE, THE PEOPLE" can be a
God fearing, people helping,
infant holding, child rearing,
moral raising, disabled curing,
humble praying, Bible reading,
Jesus trusting, history teaching,
fact checking, truth telling,
pastor preaching, gospel breathing,
hard working, earth-moving,
family loving, elderly caring,
honest speaking, respect keeping,
humble swearing, fair sentencing,
environment respecting, heaven searching,
government limiting, bureaucrat checking,
conservative spending, tax repealing,
federal limiting, priority budgeting,
rights protecting, liberty voting,
forward focusing, Constitution defending,
veteran supporting, enemy defeating,
flag waving, freedom fighting,
always standing, never caving,
sometimes talking, always walking,
ever seeking, promise keeping,
UNITED PEOPLE once again.
(if we, but will fight for it).
From black to white,
from deaf to dumb,

  1. Louis, do you have any objections to my posting this poem to Voices of America on my blog, Awakenings? I started the piece back in October in hopes of adding to it periodically. Of course, it will be posted to your full credit. Here is the link so you can check it out:

  2. Yes, of course. Thank you very much. ~louis
