…still waiting

I’m not ok. I’m sad. I’m scared. I’m confused. I don’t understand why we as a country are allowing ourselves to be divided by hatred and fear.

I wanted to exhale today
to stop holding my breath.

I wanted dawn to bring New Year’s Day
to feel the joy of new beginnings.

I’m tired of division
and drained by lies.

I’m still praying for change
praying for civility
praying for kindness
praying for honesty.

I’m still waiting to exhale
praying I don’t pass out
before the sun rises.
