Freedom Flag
by Ekemini Nkanta

 A colored canvas
speckled with stars
lined with the colors of freedom,
waving in a silent sense of justice.
Even as the towers tumble
and the bombs explode,
it continues to stand
eternally free.
We confess in a pledge
of never-wavering allegiance,
and with hands over our hearts
we remember what it represents
and the liberty it promises.
Maybe,
in a more peaceful world,
we can fly among its stars

and sail across its stripes.
