Poetry/Short Stories

Stay afloat!


Dear nation,

Land of honor

Nation of men and women

Of grace and forgiveness

Nation that was built

From blood and sweat;

Hard work!

Nation that our ancestors

Prayed for

Nation of sons and daughters

Lost for the flag

Nation of fathers and mothers

Honored by the flag

Nation that we honor

Nation that we pray for

Nation that we hope for

Stay afloat

Don’t sink

Before our eyes!

Susan McMillan
