How To Right, A Wrong

State of The State, This January Day

Nothing had changed,
but everything seemed different.
Colours marked the shoreline
in vibrant sunlight hues,
only then, they shown against
a blanket of winter’s white
an absence of urgency
to find time.

Nothing had changed,
but somehow it had.
Those dime-store quick fixes
were plumb out of remedy.
Grown of necessity
only a pilgrimage’s guidance
could offer hope
to finding new ground,
a new context
for amassing a new regime.

It has been three years
Since the party of choice began their march,
only three years to make a mark
of difference,
but the only difference I see,
is how much we have not learned
from our past.
And how much more
we only need time to mark the new beginning
we so wished to start
against this new winter’s white hue.
