Fenced in By Christine Swiderski

Fenced in


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.
