Poem: Liberty

Oh once lady liberty rang strong, the bell has cracked the song has gone. Feeding the hungers of our greed, wonderous things but we don’t need. Steadfast , strongest, but capital gains in the country where money reigns. Distortion , exploitation of human rights. Oh great liberty would weep as our foundation begins to crumble from the echoes of the rumble of protest and diversity. Once sweet song now taste the bitterness that cracks and shimmers not of glory and prosperity for all, but of a darkness that plagues the land. Who will rise and who will fall? What great country I see it not, nothing but a shadow of what could have been, should have been but now the fate falls to all who can plainly see, there is something wrong and it is not in our diversity.

As an artist , writer, and dreamer N.K Sterling spends days crafting new creations be it in painting or jewelry making or dabbling in many creative avenues in life from music to sewing has only made Sterling more inspired to keep trying new things. Enjoying a good book by the fire, or an adventurous outing with furry friends is always a go to for this expressive soul. Writing has been a passion since the age of twelve and the associate's degree in liberal arts has only help expand this creative mind for future endeavors while currently living in the southern USA.
