I think therefore I am

Yes I did, I had my say,
a ballot by mail.
My first Presidential election as a US citizen.
I got to say a few other things too,
like who I want to be governor.
I thought a lot
about what I wanted,
tried to find a match.
A match on the most important things,
I learned a lot about myself
as I learned about candidates.
Today I was a responsible citizen
of my fairly newly adopted country.
It might not really matter
in the big picture
considering how many others
vote
but it really mattered to me.

Go Kristen! And did you know you're now eligible to run for Mrs. America? Bet you hadn't thought about that one yet...
