Breathe . . .
A State of Mind
Feeling hope in lieu of despair Watching as we repair Trust in truth again Allowing a smile and a tear Who are we . . . a quandary Who do we want to be What have we learned Will we remember and mend The heart feels The mind knows But doubt is persuasive Listen carefully and learn Then the waiting for change The self-reflection Outside Influences sting Impaired vision blurs Strength in fits and starts Conviction with patience Honor without bravado Justice and grace Thank you so much to my brothers and sisters in the United States.
