America Survives

By Sue Lichtenfels, April 2020

Our lives are full of uncertainties.
The Coronavirus has us on our knees.
Science, tech, and medical battle the disease.
Essential workers ensure groceries and utilities.
Quarantine and distancing as normality flees.
Waiting for the time when restrictions will ease.

Apart, but yet together, we save many lives.
In our country, genuine humanity thrives.
Nothing can defeat us, when each of us strives.
Our spirit is invincible. America survives.

The sins of our leaders are now laid bare.
Their motives questioned, for whom do they truly care?
The fabric of democracy, time to fix the tear.
By casting our ballot, we begin the repair.
The responsibility, all of which we share.
“We deserve better,” all of us declare.

Apart, but yet together, we save many lives.
In our country, genuine humanity thrives.
Nothing can defeat us, when each of us strives.
Our spirit is invincible. America survives.

All of us are equal: citizen, immigrant, and refugee:
Each one of us God’s child in the land of the free.
Every life matters, from sea to shining sea.
Caring for each other, the priority must be.
Standing united despite class, race, or disability.
Fighting for each other toward true equality.

Apart, but yet together, we save many lives.
In our country, genuine humanity thrives.
Nothing can defeat us, when each of us strives.
Our spirit is invincible. America survives.
