Lady Liberty


Tsuris - the accumulative measure
of the burdens borne in each
persons soul

Hidden and sequestered
in secrets untold

The sadness of a tumultuous journey
yet to unfold

These places so tender
the pain is too great

Will never be healed
by great fortunes nor fate

Tis kindness and love
that must heal this pain

For the enemy of prejudice
must ever be slain

To reveal the noble spirits
of lives never lived in vain

She lifts her golden lamp
to warm the huddled masses

Extending compassion and hope
to all the worlds races and classes

Her tenderness and love claiming victory
as each new century passes
