Here we are again,
Celebrating “Freedom” or whatever
But Black Lives still don’t matter
LGBTQIA rights are worse
Children hunger and forgotten
Hate crimes up and rising
And I just Can’t,
Free to do what?
What are we celebrating?
I hate how Americans have turned
Freedom into an equivalency for Selfishness
And we all know that this has been a problem
For a while.
But I had some hope in the days of Black Lives Matter
and when Covid efforts were new
That we might actually learn some things.
But we are still a country
That throws more money at war and police
Then schools and social efforts and equality.
Some countries have Kings
We have Capitalism, Liberty, Christianity and White Supremacy
We all are living with the results of this.
So here’s my prayer:
for human dignity,
the right to belong
the right to eat good food, shelter and be clothed
the right to water, education and clean air
the freedom to be oneself.
The right to pray and to refrain from praying
I hope everyone gets a moment to just be today.
And maybe tomorrow, we will work for each other’s freedom’s
Instead of our own.
Please Jesus, show us the way.
