I have read about you Dr. Ben Carson,
A student at a very early age in the hardest of places to learn,
the poverty stricken streets of Detroit, Michigan.
Your story inspired me to believe in you,
that anyone with a dream and determination will accomplish.
Your heart for those afflicted and the skill acquired to make the repair
as one of the world’s most accomplished Surgeons proved your desire.
Your gentleness in speech and examination for all you have encountered
created a man most honorable, beloved and trusted.
And now you have carefully examined the call to a higher office,
taking on the monumental challenge of a new kind of leadership.
Ben, if anyone can fix a nation –
the wretched mess this nation is,
its twisted turn and decaying stance,
the deep divide fueled by the haves and the have-nots,
the runaway and rampant ignorance which trashes our governance,
the mental mess we show the world by forgetting who we should be,
your skilled mind and hands fit the job like no other.
Your faith and duty prove that destiny awaits,
and mercy shall provide the opportunity.
You have done the impossible,
been fearless to address the gravest of fears, in life and death…
and now, instead of being the catalyst of care and healing to individuals,
You are going to be the surgical tool to heal a nation
desperate for answers.
God bless and watch over you and yours Ben;
Run this race to your rightful place as skilled leader and humble servant.
