Four more years…

I remember this day four years ago. Or more specifically the night. Many of us do I’m sure.

Waking up several times and checking how the results were going. The shock when it became clear what was going to happen.

And the next morning realising that this man would be US president for the next four years.

Four years. It seemed like such a long time.

But here we are. At the end of those four years already.

And it doesn’t take that many blocks of four years to make up a lifetime.

So as millions of Americans make their voices heard today, maybe we can pledge something similar for ourselves, so that in four years time can look back and be proud. Not necessarily of what we have achieved, but of four years being true to ourselves, four years standing up to be counted, four years making our voice heard.

PS I wrote this song straight after the 2016 election. It’s nice to listen back.
