Independent

I do not know what this all means –
Independence Day right now –
when redefining freedom 
was different then than now,
how mindsets have since shifted
but some brains have stayed behind,
reshaping laws, procedures,
all to better human kind.
This day in which we broke away
from powers that we hated
repeats itself, a larger echo,
it's now reciprocated.
Among thy neighbors, friend and foe,
we stand together still,
our Independent land right now ...
there's more work we need to do.
I don't know what to celebrate
this Independence Day right now.
As fireworks extol outside,
what do we shout about? 
The way our country freed itself,
Independent from oppressors?
Or how we must be free again,
as our Independence festers?
