“I Lift My Eyes” – A Poem by Sharee Anne Gorman

I lift my eyes
to the heavens
and find
Silence

I lift my eyes
to the pulpit
and find
Complicity

I lift my eyes
to the Presidential Lectern
and find
Betrayal

I lift my eyes
to the wealthy
and find
the soul of greed
wrapped in a cloak
of charity

I drop my eyes
and look around me
to find
I am among
the United
