Give It Meaning

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “flag.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

Flying at half-mast
The symbol of representation
A mark
Waving in victory
Lying still on a peaceful day
Pride in the heart
For the fallen and the living
Birthplace
Deathplace
And everything in between
A nation
United or divided under the emblem
Meaning
Or
Meaningless
Hearts soaring
With the flapping flag
Binds us together
And tears us apart
May it bandage the wounds
And those entrusted
With giving it import
Do it justice
That we all claim it as ours
Together
