Fall of The Republic: Off and On
As we near that time where we declare next year ours, keep in mind the things we walked away from this year and in years past. We have escaped the dooms of disaster and the flames of defeat. Yet, we have also abandoned causes and concerns that for a moment had us fired up and ready to go.
So we went….far and away from where we said we would take it. We shared our testimony and claimed our reward but we stood reluctant to raise hell to find heaven or at least a haven.
As new years near, never forget the things we swear by and swore off. Remember the legacy we promised to carry on and the heritage we vowed to preserve. When we tag ourselves winners winning, forget not the lost and the losses. When the clock strikes twelve and the new day begins, inscribe upon the clean slate those dedications unveiled but unfinished.
