We Breathe in Now

20170916_123027

Etched within the blue, sacred moments,

as if we really belonged there

or we prayed that way

when we were young,

yet we breathe in now, the clouds 

seeking safety

desperately hoping

our souls will not be counted

as spoils of war

as our democracy fades

from the trees.
