Colors of a Nation

Missing blue
Why blue
Color of the sky, color of defense

Different parties
Conflicting ideas, same freedoms, equal freedoms

Equal justice
Real people, understanding people

Blood shed
Red blood
Independence with acceptance

All religion
Free religion
Welcomed here to thrive here

Powers splayed
A Nation’s positions on its conditions

When dreaming
Know why
Founded by curiosity and built on truth
