Fenced in By Christine Swiderski
Awash the expance of mankind
continuing to equate wrong as right
Fencing in the liberty of souls
Chiseling at the heart of truth
wanting to form a different image
Sculpting the fringes of rights
Grassroots stain the potter's hand
with the blood of it's heroes
Mulching the ground no longer Holy
Hollowed by the elites mortar's
Green is the new holy cause
blackened by the applause.
A prayer within the heart
No longer applauded
Instead becomes variant of oppression
Freedom of prayer and speech
given only to the minority
Majority shrugs and applause?
Nay! Holding a collective breath
Crying out for intervention
Hope within strives for renewal
Heart and soul of mankind.
