Beauty SereneThe words you may hear,won't exit my mouth in haste.I will speak each oneinto your loving embrace.A thoughtful moment,inspired by civil controversy.Trapped inside a reputationthat extends my efforts for you.I can make a promise to you,each and every time we speak.I want you to understandthat you have made me this weak.I cannot stand on shaking knees,and cannot bear to watch you go.I write you letter after letter,hoping my frail heart won't show.This strong exterioris just a show.Inside the heart of a poet,the world will never know.Come out and be yourself,is that really so hard?I struggle with fear everyday.A fear I won't forget these scars.I smile when I see your face,even though it's in my mind.I cannot hear your voice;yet it echoes loudly from behind.Trembling at the thought,maybe this is real.I can't shake the feelingthese scars might heal.

God is Not an American ValueLadies and Gentlemen of Congress, thank you for allowing me to speak today.I do not stand before you with a hate filled heart.I do not stand before you today wishing to destroy anyone's beliefs or ways of life.I do not stand before you today hoping to achieve a victory for one group while hurting another.Instead, I stand before you today in the hope that you listen open-mindedly.That is all I ask.In 1956, "In God We Trust" was adopted as the United States official motto. This motto has been on our coins since 1864 and on our paper currency since 1957. In 1954, the words "Under God" where added to the Pledge of Allegiance. The question of whether or not these phrases are constitutional has been argued on all levels, from the dinner tables of average Americans, all the way up to the Supreme Court. I personally believe that these phrases are unconstitutional, but the arguments for it have been so overused that I feel repeating them would be beating a dead horse.No, instead I will b
