A Valentine to my Country

Unity is...

in our name

defines us, we

are different but equal

we, the bicentennial


on course with

concentric crises, but

the wisest remind us

that all

unity is

the warp, the weft

the pattern of our past

the future mission

a seamless


the fabric the medium

the colors the character

waves of grain

channel through our veins

biases remain while

unity is

the word deferred

for posterity

the goal not the glory

the American


a contradiction of


the experiment, the melting pot

the recipe for democracy,


unity is

our destiny

the manifest testament

to which we pledge

a promise, a premise

the wedge

between us dislodged

with words not weapons

with truth not seconds

of soundbites, upending

what unity is
