Dear America VIII

Why not be there for each other,

it won’t work any other way

I’ve seen us do it in disasters

where we come and save the day!

Well we’re headed for disaster,

let's cape up and fly love's way

or we’ll find our hearts bankrupt

without love enough to pay

So it matters how “us” treats “them”

and it matters what we say


We are “us” and we are “them”

and we decide our fate!

Only love can help us win,

don’t be persuaded by the hate!


We control the narrative

now more than it’s ever been

A habit forms in 30 days,

each day’s practice syncs it in


So, before you say it, ask yourself,

“Am I saying this to build him up?”

Before you do it, self reflect,

“Am I doing this to fill her cup?”


Say “Thank You” and really mean it

every morning as you wake up

Ask “What’s my purpose?”

till you no longer have to make up

reasons why you hate yourself.

Then live on purpose, don’t break up

commit to let love take us up

to a better USA

learning to love all of itself.


Can I count on you to practice this

for 30 days and then

You’ll speak love, do love, live love

and that’s the only way we’ll win!


So since we've tried so many things

except the habit above

Let's use our power to unify

and start asking "How Bout Love"


Join us on this journey to a better America

Be inspired and reminded to create a more perfect union
