Poem by Jason DeHart

February 11, 2020

 

 

    Mighty Nation

 

 

    who knows these

    days what the promise 

    means?

 

    Abraham in the desert

    standing under the stars

    counting his destiny.

 

    Abraham, a real person

    with moments, problems, the smell

    of dry living

 

    with the hint at something

    more to come.

 

    who knows these

    days what the promise

    means

 

    except that the promise

    is still there.
