Ode to the State

Ode to the State

 

Ode to the love

and to the hate

 

Ode to the world

that we make

 

To the skies of gray

to the dirt of black

 

We have come too far

there is no turning back

 

To the war at hand

the violence in our cities

 

Do we prosper?

or do we pity?

 

There is hate in the streets

and no outstanding crimes

 

Where are we now?

we are lost with the times

 

Ode to free

Ode to the brave

 

Ode to the world

where no one is left to save

This poem is about: 
My community
My country
Our world
