*Libertas is the Roman embodiment of liberty which the Statue of Liberty is based on. I wanted to capture the uncertainty of the nation. Questioning what comes next.*
Smiles fade away in the twilight hours.
A nation divided stands primed to fall,
From grace that was never truly ours.
Uncertainty and injustice for all?
Do we give in to the gloom of the grave,
And let bleak spirits continue to sink?
Or rise above like the banner did wave,
Far away from inequality’s brink?
Do we soar like eagles into the sky?
Or will we be prey for a growing bear?
Is the light of Libertas a war cry,
Or a symbol to snuff out like a flare?
Will love conquer in the land of the free,
Or division from sea to shining sea?
