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.
