Politics & Faith

First line from the 2nd Corinthians:
“We have accepted within ourselves the sentence…”

Politics & Faith

we the youth of a dying democracy
have no faith left in these old men
who accepted all the mistakes of the
past within the scope of their job
description

ourselves & souls, rise only to better the future
of our children’s children, their life
sentence—surrounded by destruction—their
homes family’s friends—death will be a
frequent visitor with no condolences left,

will, a concrete cushion, pads the inevitable losses,
so we teach them- as our mothers did,
we catapult our voices towards the world’s
vaulted skies, in hopes that we might

be heard by the God those old men
have forgotten to fear
