Why are we turning back?

Thu, 05/04/2017 - 13:14 -- loket

Why are we turning back?

Was the scar from the trail of tears not deep enough?

To plunge another knife, in our tarnished history?

We are the epitome of irony,

and all our immigrant ancestors would agree.

We can only hope to wait and learn,

for the land of the of the free

and the home of the brave,

to heal and walk forward once again.
