Lady Liberty Weeps #Poetry #Immigration #Re-Post

Lady Liberty weeps
Her, the Mother of exiles
Her land of humility overcome with pomp
Her true descendants receive
The tired, the poor, the huddled masses

In my opinion, the United States should return to its roots as a place of welcoming and inviting people from all over the globe, refugees, exiles, the poor, the forsaken of the world. The Statue of Liberty and its inscription, “New Colossus” by poet Emma Lazarus symbolize that sentiment.

I am re-posting this poem as a response to the racism and diabolical immigration policies practiced by our current administration in protest of their inhumane treatment of non-whites from around the world. It is a disgrace.

  1. Lady Liberty is absolutely weeping. Her heart is broken by the negative discourse we see on both sides of the political spectrum.

    I posted a poem a long time ago about immigration. Emma Lazarus’ words are rich in meaning and still apply today.

  2. I’m glad you see it now. As a black woman I have seen this coming from this president from the beginning of his presidential run. Nice post.

    • Yeah, I didnt vote for him and haven’t been a fan his entire presidency. I wrote the poem last August in response to his denigrating comments about African and Central American countries. My main reason in re-posting was the administration’s recent interpretation of Emma Lazarus’ poem.
