America The Beautiful


America's degeneracy is made continueous
Through her self appointment. She conscripts
Without regard, to risk each of her vested
Interests. Mean the while amassing truths
Unconsigned. Her proclaimation to each the
Matter and state of marred transactions across
The length and breath of her. How may she
Overlap a bright future with a dark and scoreless
Past. A battle raging on until now. How may
Her citizens love her always. How long the pause
To raise her humbled brow when addressed
'America the Beautiful'

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
