The Protector and The Star

I can still hear the cheers and tears of happiness

I can still see the crowds in the streets chanting his name

Waving the flag with pride and seeing a ray of hope

During a time where we had seen so much tragedy

We had put our faith in our new leader, he became our protector

After eight years, I still remember the pride I felt in my country when he was made our leader


When we were at our lowest point, he came and took us out from the darkness

Our protector made no empty promises, just provided answers and change

He put his country first and strived to do what was right

The protector listened to his people and truly cared for his followers

He worked extremely hard with his team to find the best solutions

And the protector brought the county back to its former glory


But now his time is up and it’s time for someone to take his place

We had a choose between a politician and a reality star

But we choose the reality star….

He brought to surface the hate in our country, and encouraged more of it

The star mocks and brings more struggle to those he deems unimportant

He treats people like pawns in his game and doesn’t care who gets hurt


But worse of all the star wants to undo everything the protector has done

The star wants to take away the protector’s solutions, without a replacement

The star made promises he doesn’t intend to keep

The star has laughed at the views of those who believed in him

He wants to create rules that would provoke hate toward others

But still people insists he will be our savior


The feeling of betrayal from my county is huge

I always believed this country was great

That we were a smart and tolerant county

So how did we go from having a protector to a star as our leader?

Why are people filled with so much hatred? Why do they trust this man?

But most of all where is the America I used to love?
