It Was the Time of Hope —
it Was the Time Of Despair
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.
It was the time of hope, it was the time of despair.
It was the time for deceit and yet a time of looking for the truth.
It was the time for patience, but the long waiting hours and days only prolonged the wonder.
The nation stood in the balance, and the powers that be stood erect but shaken to their core.
The people waited and listened to every count and every drop of the bucket for the final outcome, and yet the curtain didn’t fall, for he who held the strings prolonged its outcome until all were wasted.
The colors of the flag all ran together, and the stars and stripes were broken, for what was once united had
now become divided.
Tempers rose and the voices of some yelled out for the count to stop, even as the workers toiled away.
There was a hush that was felt across the nation, for even since the birth of these things, there has never
been a shaking, a question of what should occur.
The statesmen stood and waited while the tyrant plotted on in his chambers, devising schemes that some believed while other questioned.
The enemy laughed for he knew that his devices were working, for division was always his plan, even with those who had once known the truth.
But time has a way of reaching its goal, and for those who wait in faith, the outcome will be seen in truth.
