Today I Voted


Today I voted
No one told me I cldn’t

Today I voted
I didn’t have to march
I didn’t have to go to jail
I didn’t even have to sit in

Today I voted
My clothes are dry
No power hoses in sight

Today I voted
No menacing dogs
And their ferocious bites

Today I voted
I wasn’t cursed,
beat, or killed

Today I voted
for the brave before me
Today I voted for them

 And today I voted
for him…

Don't know what you do for a living, but writing poetry should definitely be an option.

So beautifully said.
