A Vote for Obama is a Vote for Me!

I gave up twenty years 
of personal freedom,
so all of you could
have yours.

I placed my life on
the line many a time,
here at home and on
distant shores.

All I ask in return is
for my freedom back,
to pursue a happiness
meant to be;

The freedom to freely
follow my heart;
to pursue all that feels
right to me.

Don’t judge me by
how I look, what I do,
whether I believe in
your god above;

Don’t judge me by
your chosen beliefs;
don’t dictate who 
I should love.

I gave it up for you,
America: religions, 
races, and colors of 
every kind.

For twenty selfless
years I had your back;
I'm trusting now that
you'll have mine.
