Sandy Stringfellow: A Tear Drop Fell from Heaven

~ Publisher’s Note: Last year we published “A Tear Drop Fell from Heaven,” a poem by Sandy Stringfellow. “A Tear Drop Fell …” is still one of the most viewed pages on The Bold Pursuit.

In a note from Sandy, he pointed out that ‘our votes on November 6, more than anything else, highlight a simple choice: liberty versus tyranny.’ 

The Bold Pursuit concurs… It’s been 236 years since the People made a decision to alter the course of our nascent republic. The decision we make, the vote we cast for president on November 6, is as consequential to our direction as a nation, as the one made by our forebears. ~ Clio


A Tear Drop Fell from Heaven

by Sandy Stringfellow 


A tear drop fell from Heaven

From a mote in God’s eye

Reflecting consternation

Rippling the sea of time


He said, “I gave you Freedom

And a place to make it grow

In the land you call America

To be loved with heart and soul”


“A place to be a beacon

For all the world to see

Where individuals compete

In My land of Liberty”


“I inspired your Founding Fathers

Great men of moral strength

With appreciation and humility

They gave thanks to Me”


“My Son showed you the Way

Through His words and deeds

To guide you and provide you

With everything you need”


“Thus began your sojourn

To create what I envisioned

A shining city on the hill

Built with reason, love, and wisdom”


“Where talents would be nourished

And many interests cultivated

A people free to choose

Based on inspirational motivation”


“By design I’ve made you struggle

So that you may understand

Each life is a spiritual journey

The instrumental part of My plan”


“But your Faith became compromised

And you turned away from Me

Seductive voices lured your heart

From what I taught you to believe”


“I’m now barred from the Courtrooms

Barred from your Government

I’m barred inside the classrooms

And even barred from Christmas”


“Some have blamed it on evil

Others point to Engels and Marx

They’re identical but the real point is

You’ve been failing to do your part”


“Your Founding Fathers were scholars

Who fought against all tyranny

Since the Progressives co-opted Marx

They’ve been training you how to think”


“They projected arrogance and vanity

While promoting your personal pleasure

As you grew more naive and gullible

From seeking a life of leisure”


“Abrogation of honor and duty

Yields the enslavement of man

When Faith became a distraction

You let go of My guiding hand”


“Switch off all the gaming and boob tubes

Kick your sick habits and dependence

Stop obsessing over pop culture lunacy

Begin to start making a difference”


“You can still save your Freedom

America is not over and done

But your time has almost expired

If it does you’ll have no place to run”
