To The Sky

A Black woman sits atop a torn American flag with broken shackles and chains on her feet. her head titled towards the sky as a suggestion of power and faith. An expression of determination to focus her mind to a spiritual world far beyond her apparent circumstances, show on her face.

Like my elders in Mississippi used to say,

"When the ground gets too hard... Focus on the sky".
