I have been told that twins run in my family. That has scared me since my late teens. It got scarier when my wife was pregnant the first time.
Render unto Caesar what is Caesar's
Also unto God, what's God's
This great Republic, shadow of Rome
Boldly calls itself home
Of the brave, the free
The needy refugee
I won't deny those words sting my eyes
Hope, pride, shame and compromise
America has lost her way
And in some ways that's OK
My Homeland is no longer England's Bride
But there is another shame she hides
I felt like stepping out of the norm a bit. These 10 minute writing challenges have mostly focused on little stories, writing a little poem was a welcome change.
A little poem from the heart, reflecting on the passing of time and the changes it brings.
