Poetic License: Declaration of Independence: July 4, 2011

July 1, 2011
Joe Pacheco
On this day

of celebrating

independence,

I declare

interdependence

a new truth

to be held

self-evident,

humanity

created free,

interdependent

on each other;



I declare

what defeats

and hurts

any human,

anywhere,

also defeats

and hurts me;



I declare that

suppression

in any corner

of Earth

suffocates,

narrows

the air of the

whole planet,

and I declare

that one day

the uncontrolled

emissions

of anguish

from those yearning

to breathe free

may vanquish

all of us

unless we free

ourselves

to declare

on this first Day

of Interdependence:



"No one is free

until all of us

are free!"
