Red, White, and You

Fri, 05/05/2017 - 17:09 -- tbo18

Color encompassing unfamiliar faces

 

All united under one familiar flag soaring high 

 

Unknown are the backgrounds, but defined are the races 

 

Gathering and discussing under one sky

 

 

 

Imagine beauty and gratitude found in every color 

 

Souls instead of skin tones defining our worth 

 

Enough love and hope within a single room to make one shudder 

 

Forgone the hostility, prejudice, and dearth 

 

 

 

Embracing the warmth from hand clasping hand

 

Standing alongside our companions once thought our enemies 

 

Proudly together we stand 

 

O'er Land and Seas

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This poem is about: 
My country
Our world
