Haiku My Heart: May the Fourth Be With You
Haiku My Heart
i invite you to
imagine living in peace
one day at a time
I have to admit that I'm finding it hard to celebrate
the birthday of my country having declared its independence
from Mother England,
when the country was founded on institutionalized slavery,
the idea that white men were created equal
but but black men were less than
and women weren't even considered.
We tend to glorify the "all men are created equal" phrase
without looking at the reality.
We can do better.
