    I am an American who cannot wait for the elections to come and wonder how long our nation will survive. I wonder which two of the candidate will be president starting this November. I hear a lot of controversy over the upcoming election. I see a bunch of commercials about Obama and Romney. I want the better of the two to be president. I am an American who cannot wait for the elections to come. I pretend that everything is going to be alright in our nation. I feel that our government is not helping our nation advance and get better. I touch (an imaginary touch) I worry when our nation constantly spends money as if there was no limit. I cry when I think about our country going to collapse. I am an American who cannot wait for the elections to come and wonder how long our nation will survive. I understand that everything our nation does will not be good in the long run. I say that our country is slowly drifting away. I dream that America will someday be as great as it was years ago. I try my best to do anything I can for America. I hope that America will survive and not crumble. I am an American who cannot wait for the elections to come and wonder how long our nation will survive.

    I can't think of anything that would follow "I touch (an imaginary touch" that would match the poem, can't think of anything.

    K so my poem is an "I Am Poem" and there are certain guidelines for each line. My line that I need help has to do something about touching, and it's going to be above the "I worry when our nation constantly spends money as if there was no limit."

    ....so is I touch (an imaginary touch) supposed to be in the poem or not?

    Heress an example from another poem: I touch the sky, the stars, the moon, and all the planets as representatives of mankind. Perhaps you could do something similar..

    No, that's just what I'm supposed to write about. I'm suppose to make a line that has to deal with touching something that relates to the poem.

    "Every day, politicians kill the nation with their touch of death" does that work?

    or maybe "Every day, politicians kill the nation slowly with their touch of death" i think that sounds nicer
