Liberty’s Torch

A love enraged,
  Tears overflowing from injustice overwhelming
  Wielding speech free to sting, free to burn
  A banner to this liberty hoisted high
  And set ablaze

Selfless love,
  Unleashing her sacred flame
  Offering again her stripes of blood
  Our monument to each life given for liberty
  Herself giving in equal measure

Consuming love,
  Weeping embers towards the heavens
  Embracing her troubled children in light
  Shooting her stars into the sky
  Blessing our wishes for a brighter tomorrow
