Rising Stars


It’s a holiday here

The USA acknowledges its fallen

With big sales on line and in

Department stores

Selling cars on lots, too


But many will remember it

For what it allows, time and space

The capacity for

Acknowledgement, remembrance

Some closely

Who fall with a different kind

Of wound

And hopefully rise up


All the fallen may rise at the last

That in belief is a beginning
