Bernie

Bernie

A Poem by Tate Morgan
"

Don't wait till your life is all done to learn the lessons of a fool Know the rewards of self are none where love of others is the rule

"
 
 America's favorite son Bernie Sanders with family and friends

What is the value of a life

built on shattered dreams from others

And so it's thus, for each of us

who can't feel for our own brothers



These the thoughts of Bernie Sanders

who's cried for half a century

"Lift up your sons, put down your guns

empty your penitentiary”



"Pick up the sad, lonely and poor

help your friends in humility

 Open your soul, make that your goal

put away your hostility”



His struggle from the depths of a heart

so relentless yet so profound

echo's in waves, patriot graves

where mothers tears cover the ground



A grateful nation now reports

the cry that began as a plea

That's shook our core, with something more

all the way to Antiquity





 Bernie Sanders comforts a Muslim student

A wonderful man! Unfortunately, he had no chance, as you can see the mentality of this country is still in the dark ages. If we don't raise the standards of education "the wall" will fall and crush us!
Great writing, provokes emotion and awareness. Keep writing and spreading the word!

Bernie truly is a great man. Such a shame the way the masses can't see that.

I hit the age of 18 during the Democratic primary, and I am proud to say that Bernie Sanders is the first politician I've ever voted for. (Stein got your vote for the general election.) Bernie is not what America deserves, but what it needs. Nice poem!

welcome :)
He wields compassion, and a sense of fairness and nationalism. A good man and a strong, passionate voice - not afraid to take the low road. Would have made a great President. Nice tribute.
