Hope at the Breaking Point

America waits

each holding his breath
as the Earth crumbles

beneath them.

A cry arises

from the people

who have reached

the breaking point

after a long life

of hardships.

A cry arises

from those who

are drowning

in the woes of

war and poverty.




deeper than they

knew they could go.

Their cries for help
are muffled

and go unheard.

The land of liberty

and wealth

with each passing hour.

The vultures grow

more numerous
circling above

as a sinister merry-go-round.



While America holds her breath.
