“Jaded Freedom”

She stands tall, erect

Arm outstretched beyond her reach

Torch in hand ablaze

 

Eyes set on a distant sun

Glued to a gray horizon

 

Green is she who stands

With the weight of liberty

On sea-sprayed shoulders

 

Tired of bearing freedom

Representing a lost cause

 

Lady Liberty

She stands because she has to

A grimace of pain

 

Ageing her sculpted features

Liberty, stone-cold, and dead
