I Would Like to Think, by Susan Castillo

I am not a silent poet

I would like to think
My fellow citizens believe in fairness,
Sporting chances, helping underdogs.

I would like to think
Our arms are open to those fleeing war
In search of sanctuary.

I would like to think
This country is a place where children
Have enough to eat and grow

I would like to think
We stand for values such as
Tolerance, civility, compassion

I would like to think
We have the sense to vote for leaders
Who are not corrupt buffoons

I would like to think
We are a nation of sane people
who do the right thing in the end.
