Who Stole the Heart of Our Homeland ~ By ElizaBeth Coira

It’s not everyday I get to shout poetry into a megaphone! Thanks to the organizers of the Spokane #FEMFEST19 for the chance to do so with this piece on Saturday night!

ElizaBeth Coira - The Home Grown Sojourner

The time has come for Americans of good conscience to reclaim our nation from the plights of greed, apathy, and egregious evil that have assumed control of our nation. We can no longer continue to look the other way. We can no longer cower in the shelters of relative comfort, and mind-numbing entertainment. The time has come to rise. Rise to the call within your Heart. She will show you the way.

Walk a While with Me Friend
The Women’s March Continues for a Third Year in Eastern Washington
By ElizaBeth Coira

How do you choose to honor our democracy?
How do you choose to advance “we the people”?
How do you choose to strengthen and grow our beautiful nation whole?

In the shivery, wintery days of late January this year, Americans across the nation showed up and spoke out. For the third year in a row the Women’s Marches convened in response to a rising sense of tyranny, taking ever deeper root in our national governance, while threatening to divide and separate us here at home. In eastern Washington we the people gathered January 19th in both Spokane and Chewelah to indeed honor our democracy, and express our concerns over issues that include women’s rights, human rights, immigration policy, accessible healthcare, economic and social justice, environmental protection, governmental corruption and fraud, and so much more. Thank you to those that marched for so many reasons yet united, in our desire to evolve our society and find a better way, for the greater good…for us all. Continue reading

ONE – By ElizaBeth Coira

ElizaBeth Coira - The Home Grown Sojourner

One_ElizaBeth Coira_HomeGrownSojourner

Unique and special
Yet One
Aren’t we

My sister
My brother
My friend

Must we fight
Constantly compete
Subjugate to win
For what in the end

I’d like to dance
Down by the lake
For there at peace
Is the plane I’ve heard of

Devoid of right
Far away from wrong
Existence so different
From the stories been told

Scripts we’ve sold
Along with our souls
But I no longer buy it
This time with my life
