Down Then Up

By Alex Andy Phuong


Down Then Up

Exhume and exalt the common man
because the pursuit of happiness results in anything but
American idealism is a bit ironic if one considers
the fact that many dreams really do become deferred
Dig deep within the soul
but there is no need to despair
Unearth the beauty found on Earth
