The Day After


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.
