As I toured Philly with my family,<br>
Mothering all the while,<br>
I reflected on statues of founding fathers<br>
Cast in cold metals<br>
Scraping the skies<br>
While, on hands and knees,<br>
I wrote my children's names in chalk on the ground.<br><br>
Weren't our founding fathers<br>
Once babies,<br>
Drinking, dozing,<br>
at the fullness of breast,<br>
Warm milk dripping from the corners?<br><br>
What is Liberty<br>
If not to uplift<br>
Those who hold you,<br>
Love you,<br>
Make you strong?

That was so beautiful! I just got chills! And I was in Philly in May so I felt the connection while reading it.
