 Poems for Lovers and Sinners

God and Liberty

  I sit in the park staring at liberty

  She hasn't given me any in a while

  The lights burn bright on fifth

  Another world for the exuberant rich

  Here in this sanctuary of mine

  Seclusion surrounds me within the darkness

  There's nothing to suppress or imprison my body

  Only the loneliness beside me crying

  I'm a beggar with no hope of salvation

  An outcast who tried but failed in life

  I've asked for forgiveness...but I'm still waiting

  Think eternity for me will be damnation

  There's a cross partly lit two blocks down

  Shinning like a beacon, drawing in flocks to...

  Be saved from ferocious beasts that roam the night

  I sit here staring at liberty the effigy of freedom
  Looking upwards towards the golden cross
  Maybe these two should get together one day
  Come up with a plan...
  And put this land to right!
