The Permanence of Hope

The Permanence of Hope

There was a day
When we held each other up
And shared the value of civility
Reaching out to each other
Regardless of belief and faith

There was also a day
When we held each other down
In a way not so civil
Fraying the bonds to each other
Based on belief and faith

Our shared history
Has moved us between both days
Fighting for and against freedom
In the name of the same Nation

And yet the permanence of hope
Has led us down the path of progress
On more days than not
Where we find
Air and simple gifts
Build our shared values

We again face the choice

We hold these truths to be self evident
