Collective Conscience

My stomach is churning

As I watch in disbelief

Of a debate between candidates

Who are vying to lead our country.

One is off the cuff, rude, self-absorbed.

The other displays humility, focus, eloquence.

The work the winning candidate

Faces is daunting in this

Torn-apart world.

I have the power to make

My voice heard on voting day

But I worry for future generations

About what could happen

If the wrong candidate wins.

I pray for this country

That our collective conscience

Overrides the political machine

That has come undone.
