The Day After

Courtesy embracerefugees.org

Friends and family
Step away from yesterday
The world is hurting

We baked in the sun
Nothing today to run from
No plan to escape

Sixty-five million
Displaced and seeking refuge
POTUS promised bans

Lady Liberty
Open his mind and his heart
Our prayer for the world

Inspired by S Lynn Knight’s Independence Day prompt.
