Dark Horse

by | Poetry

In a confusing time of destruction and void

Life breathes for rare finds

Appearing from the ashes of dust and reconciliation

A wish for a truly new nation


New voices rise in acapella

Strengthened by a chorus of ancestral yesterday

Be rid of the cacophony and collusion

Awakening to who we all really are


As these voices elevate

They help deteriorate

Division by strife and stripes

And all the while a new hero emerges


The every day hero

The guy next door hero

The girl you bring home to mom hero

The you and me hero


The speech pierces

The message delivered

The voice of reason and compassion

Forgiveness and expansion


Testing ground for emerging leaders

Refusing to play by the original social contract

A new land indivisible

Indeed now, perhaps liberty and justice for All
