Inaugural Lament

Inaugural Lament January 20, 2017

T11081152_10204954703800648_5515217879272883970_noday is a rough day.

Today we know that the world is not right.

Today we sit in ashes.

Today we rend our garments.

Today we cry.

Today we grieve.

Today we wonder how the hell this happened.

Today we make plans for what to do if things go horribly wrong.

Today we see the ugliness of humanity’s glare.

Today we see our brothers and sisters tremble.

Today we stare down privilege, hate, and pain.

Today we see marching bands clank and squawk.

Today we see evil glorified.

Today we cry.

 

And tomorrow we march. We march on.

Tomorrow we go high.
