It’s up to YOU, America by Neetu

It’s up to You, America

here we stand
not one Nation under God

fragmented under
a heaving flag
weighted down
by broken parts

shredded by knives
with rusted edges
blunted, yet sharp
in grievances

old cracks and ignorance
faulted lines below
the glossy glaze
held together
are now frayed

here we are
back in time
rolling in dismal strife
wondering how we got to this
at a loss for a healing fix

as in all things we have learned
there’s seldom a road to permanence

each generation carves its path
this one’s up to us, America.
