Back from the wall

Back from the wall, stare your memories.Miles between each, ripping at realities seams.

Hearing today’s voices, railing unfair at their choices.

Demanding unearned, experiences rewards.

Denied under crises and trial, earned, unreceived, you smile.

Arrogance of artistic elite, decrying inequities of wealthy seat.

Comprehension retreats under ill begotten protests.

Stirred hearts reluctantly claim histories fame.

As youthful voices cry out a country’s shame.

For this nation you fought, for ungrateful, blood, liberty bought.

Share with us your dream, fill us with futures hope, before you leave.

Back from the wall, stare your memories.

Back from the wall.
